Replace <server name> with the IP address or hostname of the license server.
If you have configured your license server to use specific ports:
SERVER <server name> 0 <license server port> VENDOR toonboom PORT=<vendor daemon port> USE_SERVER
Replace <server name> with the hostname or IP address of the license server, <license server port> with the port which the license server is configured to use, and <vendor daemon port> with the port that the vendor daemon is configured to use.
