FlexLm and Dual NICs

Has anyone set up a license server with dual NICs? Is this even possible with FlexLM? How does this affect a redundant server model?
Also in a redundant server model what causes the control of license distribution to be passed on to another machine?
Thanks in advance.

I can't answer your redundent server questions. But, as to using FlexLM
with multiple NICs, yes you can do this. When setting up your lic manager
you specify which NIC to use. The nice thing about FlexLM is that it ties
itself to a NIC by the NIC's MAC address so it doesn't matter if you have 1
IP address or a 10 IP addresses tied to that NIC, nor does it matter if you
have 10 different NICs in that machine either. The only thing you need to
make sure of (which is obvious) is that the NIC you tie FlexLM to has to be
connected to the network .

If you have the older AdLM on the same machine this will break the AdLM lic
manager. I will not run properly on a machine with more than 1 NIC (or even
more than 1 IP address for that matter).
