Imagix 4D User Guide


License Admin

There are three alternative methods for configuring the Imagix license manager to operate in your environment.

Node-Locked Available under Windows and Linux, a node-locked installation enables you to run Imagix 4D on a specific machine. This approach requires a node-locked style Windows or Linux license file.

Floating, File-Based Available under Linux and Unix, a file-based floating installation enables users to share licenses; as one user closes an Imagix 4D session, a seat gets freed up, enabling another user to open Imagix 4D. License management is file-based, so no license server needs to be running in the background. This approach requires a floating style Linux/Unix license file, and only supports Imagix 4D running as a Linux/Unix client application.

Floating, Server-Based Available across Windows, Linux and Unix, a server-based floating installation enables users to share licenses; as one user closes an Imagix 4D session, a seat gets freed up, enabling another user to open Imagix 4D. License management is server-based, so that a license server needs to be running in the background before Imagix 4D session can be started. Depending on where the license server is going to run, this approach requires a floating style Windows license file or a floating style Linux/Unix license file. Regardless of which operating system the license server itself is running under, the Imagix 4D client application is supported across Windows, Linux and Unix.
