I am wondering if it's possible to run 2 versions of C3d from separate license servers on one single computer?
Thanks in advance,

Welcome to the community.
To answer your question... most likely. But to be clear, what exactly are you trying to accomplish?
Working for 2 separate companies, so using only A's network license for A's projects and B's network license for B's projects. I would like to install both on one workstation so when I travel (and doing work for both), I'm not dragging 2 workstations along for the ride.
I see what you mean. You can only borrow two licenses for one product under the following circumstances:
1. You login with a different user account and borrow the licenses as different users
2. You borrow a license from one server using the hard-wired Ethernet NIC on one server and the your WiFi card on the second server
In either of these situations, you will have a borrowed license from each server for one application.
Ultimately, it does not matter whose license you use though. The software doesn't really care.
The borrowed license is tied to the username and the network card. So if you borrow a license with the NIC, then it needs to be enabled to work. If you borrow a license with the WiFi, it needs to be enabled to work. In both cases, if you disable one the other license will be used on the other card.
Likewise, if you login as User1, it will use one license. If you login with User2, it will use the other.
Either way would suffice in your situation.
