This is a new licensing model to deal with environments such as AWS where the hosted servers where they constantly change their machine ID (which is tied to the licence) and as a result the licence activated becomes invalid; which has becomes a problem for developers to re-activate the licence on their 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 licence and licence 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 received by the relay server, it then sends that response back to the original client.
