Setting up and using a Compute Server license

When using a Compute Server license, programs that call the Gurobi Optimizer can offload Gurobi computations onto one or more machines. There are a few steps involved in setting up such licenses. The first is to retrieve your license key. The key should be installed on the machine that will act as a Compute Server. Once you have your key, you will need to start Gurobi Remote Services. Finally, client machines will need a Compute Server client license in order to find the Compute Server(s).

Note that if you are setting up a machine as a client of an existing Compute Server, you just need to create a Compute Server client license.
