Sentinel RMS License Manager

The Sentinel RMS License Manager is a program that coordinates the use of a licensed application by multiple users and computers. The RMS License Manager usually runs on a computer that is located on the same subnet as any computer that needs to run the licensed application. It runs as a system service on Windows and as a background process on UNIX. The License Manager reads the licenses from the license file or can have them added into its memory. Each license identifies the valid uses of a single application or feature.


The computers that run the application are called clients. When a licensed application is started on the client, it sends a request for a license across the network to the License Manager. The License Manager grants the request if possible and returns an authorization message back to the client. The licensed application is installed separately on each client computer.
