V-Ray Licensing System Overview

The V-Ray licensing system is an independent licensing routine (the V-Ray floating license server, tied to a hardware locking device) and the V-Ray renderer itself. The communication between the two is based on the HTTP protocol, even if the license server and the V-Ray renderer are on the same computer. This means that in order for the licensing to work, the computer must have TCP/IP installed properly. Please note, however, that currently IPv6 is not supported.

In order to run, the V-Ray license server requires that a USB hardware lock (dongle) is attached to the computer where it is running. The dongle contains information about the number of available licenses for V-Ray. You can attach more than one dongle to the same machine to increase the number of available licenses. Before using the dongle, you must install a driver for accessing it.
