This is a new licensing model to deal with environment such as AWS where the hosted servers constantly change its machine ID (which is tied to the license) and as a result the license activated becomes invalid. And it becomes a hustle for developers to always have to re-activate the license on customers’ system.
To try to avoid such nightmare and reduce the amount of admin and paper work, we have set up a new way of how license and license activation is controlled and invoiced.
Concurrent License (RAM) Relay Server
DicomObjects’ concurrent licensing model allows users to set up an internal relay server using Asp.net (as a web service) which acts as a gateway for clients that do not have any Internet access. Each time a client machine sends a request out, that request is sent directly to the relay server, which in turn polls the live DicomObjects licensing server. As soon as a response is recieved by the relay server, it then sends that response back to the original client.
