How can I connect to a license server?

Assigning a server during installation: A license server is intended to be assigned during the installation of a product. The user is asked to select a license method during the installation process (server in this case), then asked to type either the name (hostname) of the server or the IP address of the server. When the installation is complete and the product is launched, the product will use the server method and server name assigned during the installation to claim a license.

The Sentinel RMS License System – Understanding Full and Upgrade PAKs

Background There are two types of PAK (Product Activation Key): FULL - issued when you first purchase a program UPGRADE - issued for subsequent releases which required a new license. When an Upgrade PAK is activated a Warning message is always issued as shown in the picture below.  This Warning is no cause for concern and is normal operation for an Upgrade PAK.  You will recieve such PAKs for new versions when you have previously recieved your Full license and PAK for the version you purchased.  Just ensure this is the same PC/ Server that you activated your Full PAK on, then click Yes.

There are no downsides to a Server license vs Local; there is no additional cost, it is easy to set up, can still be used on a single PC and has the following advantages: Any Windows PC can act as a license server and can both host the server
