License Server (for running HostID/Dongle locked floating licenses, not applicable for node-locked licenses):

Any one system will have to be made the license server, and it is to this PC that the dongle will be connected. The dongle is a USB device that controls the licensing. Any PC can act as a server and the system (hardware / OS) requirements are the same as that applicable to NetSim clients. USB Port is required for connecting and running the dongle. 

Client systems should be able to communicate with the license server through the network.
