Thus, a commuter authorization can be requested and received by a client computer 12 even though the client computer 12 may already have a network authorization for the same protected software program System and method for providing grace licensing to disconnected network license users.

Open or view a support case. However, if all licenses are stored and managed in a single license server, failure of that server can result in a failure of the progrwmmers license management system. F,exlm practical application of commuter licensing according to embodiments of the present invention is for networks employing laptop or notebook client computers 12 that can readily be disconnected from the network. If the network administrator makes an initial distribution that does not equal the hard limit of allocations see reference character 28in preferred embodiments of the present invention the extra allocations will be put into a free pool 48 maintained within the distribution table In alternative embodiments of the present invention, this can be accomplished by communicating with the network administrator.

The communication, or pinging, that occurs between a client computer 12 that has received a network authorization from a license server 14 is described in a related U. MIS Back in Control “, pp. To check for the presence of this environment variable, open Control Panel System Change Settings on the client’s computer.
