How to use distributed optimization with floating licenses

In Gurobi Optimizer 6.0.5, we introduced a new feature so that you can run distributed optimization using a floating network license. To use this, you need to do the following:

  1. Install Gurobi Optimizer on the computer that will serve as the token license server, and configure the Gurobi token server (grb_ts). Install Gurobi Optimizer on any computer that will run the distributed algorithms, and configure Gurobi Remote Services (grb_rs) on those computers. Install Gurobi Optimizer on any computer where users will run the Gurobi software, and configure that computer as a client of the token server. For detailed instructions, please see the Quick Start Guide: http://www.gurobi.com/documentation/ If you need further assistance with software installation or your license, please contact Gurobi support.
