How do Workstation, LAL, and GAL licenses compare?
Network (floating) licenses
Network licenses may be served from a central license server to machines on private networks.
LAL (Local Access Licenses) are network licenses. They may be floated on private networks to serve locations up to 100km in distance.
GAL (Global Access Licenses) are network licenses. They may be floated on private networks to serve locations more than 100km in distance. These licenses are more flexible.
Workstation licenses are standalone (node-locked) licenses. This means that they may only be used on the machine itself and not floated across the network. If you need another machine to use the license, you will need to move the license from the current machine to the machine needed. This may be done up to 10 times a year.
