Well each product gets it's own vendor daemon, and then there's the
FlexLM service that manages all of those. The product requesting the
license talks to the vendor daemon, not the master FlexLM service. (At
least that is the way FlexLM is architected).

In some other FlexLM environments i have, I have three different vendor
daemons (all different versions, too) running under the same umbrella
Flex service. Citrix, however, is not one of them.

Whilst the  underlying technology is the same, such as the license
server daemon (lmgrd.exe), the vendor daemon (Citrix.exe), and the
communications between the Citrix products and vendor daemon is very
different in the way it works to say VMware.

Just a silly thought, but since the citrix licensing server engine is
the macrovision flexnet, any reason I couldn't use it to hand out
licenses for other products that use the flexnet licensing engine?
Anyone done it?
