Legacy floating license manager¶
AMPL offers a floating license facility that lets you share one or several AMPL and solver licenses over a greater number of computers and users.
To set up a floating license arrangement, you begin by choosing one computer as the license server. You install our floating license management program on the server, and also on every client computer where you might want to run AMPL and solvers. You also install the AMPL and solver software on each client.
