DownStream's licensing requires a license file and a license manager to run the product. The licenses defined in the license file can be locked to a hardware key, to a specific computer network adapter or shared on a network.
DownStream products require a license manager to run. The license manager reads the license file and services requests to run the product and to access specified functionality. A license manager can be installed on your local computer to service a single product client or on a network server to manage requests of multiple product licenses from several product clients.
