can someone tell mer how this works. at the moment we have local installs -
one machine, one cad, one license. we are migrating to network served cad.
are the licenses still individual or is there ranges. like 1-10 licenses,
11-50 licenses etc.
You still buy individual licenses. It's just that a license isn't dedicated to a single
workstation. It's allowed to "float" to whatever workstation needs it. The advantage is
that you don't have to have a license for each person who might want to run autocad.
Say you have 5 full time users and 5 part time users. You might be able to get by with 7
network licenses (depending on part time use) rather than the 10 you would need if you did
local licensing only.

The ADLM lets the users check out an ACAD license and returns it when the
exit ACAD. So you don't have to worry about how many there are because the
code will only issue the amount owned at any given time. You can always
check the log to see who got one and when. I like mine.
