Summary

This dialog allows you to set up the Private License Server. The dialog is used to update the client Altium NEXUS installation to be aware of the primary and/or secondary server(s). Once a Primary Private License Server has been configured, local computers running installations of Altium NEXUS can access and use the license(s) hosted by that server. The Altium NEXUS installation on such a computer is referred to as a 'client' of the server. All available primary and secondary servers on the network to which the client computer is connected are detected and listed.
