Choose between a nodelocked or floating license. Nodelocked licenses work exclusively on the computer where they are installed so they cannot be shared in a network. Floating licenses are not attached to any particular computer, so your licenses can be shared across a network (via Next Limit's RLM License Server application) among different computers.
Render nodes are not included when you purchase a license. It is an optional add-on. Render nodes can only be purchased for floating licenses (not nodelocked licenses).
