VRay uses the WIBU licensing system for it's floating licenses which are tied to a hardware dongle. The dongle contains information about the number of available licenses. 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. A single dongle may have multiple versions of VRay, and you can run more than one VRay server on your network.
In order for the licensing to work, the computer must have TCP/IP installed properly. Please note, however, that currently IPv6 is not supported and must be completely removed.
