If you wish to grant permission to specific computers or users to use a Maple network license (which is necessary for a non-floating license), you need to do so through the options file:
C:\Program Files\Maple Network Tools\activate\maplelmg.opt
Within this file, we recommend using "group syntax" to specify the users or computers to which you wish to grant permission:
GROUP Maple_users acauchy briemann inewton INCLUDE Maple GROUP Maple_users INCLUDE MapleExcel GROUP Maple_users INCLUDE MaplePlayer GROUP Maple_users
HOST_GROUP Maple_hosts win10desktop001 win10desktop002 win10desktop003 INCLUDE Maple HOST_GROUP Maple_hosts INCLUDE MapleExcel HOST_GROUP Maple_hosts INCLUDE MaplePlayer HOST_GROUP Maple_hosts
This can also be useful for floating network licenses if you'd like to specify that only specific places can access the network license. An example would be configuring a group that consists of all the hosts of computers within a computer lab in a school.
By default a non-floating license will be user-based if created using the built in activation utility. You are able to choose between host-based and user-based if you activate using Offline Activation.
