Most floating licenses require the Geneious Floating License Manager to administer the licenses. The Geneious Floating License Manager is a FLEXnet license server. A link to the installer for this software will be sent to you at the time you receive your license. This software needs to be installed on a machine with a fixed IP address that is always turned on (with sleep or power saving features disabled), with the appropriate firewall ports opened to enable the client machines to access it.
If you do not receive a link to the floating license manager software, and your activation key is sent to you as a text file, then you have been issued a peer to peer license that is activated directly in Geneious. If you purchase a 1 or 2 seat floating license and would prefer to use a peer to peer license rather than installing the license server, please discuss this with your Geneious sales representative at the time of purchase.
