If you plan on using the departmental license server, rio-grande.pha.jhu.edu, to serve a floating license to you, please put instructions on how to reserve it for you. We can reserve the new license(s) for either a group of computers OR a group of users. Please specify the approach and the list of either computers or users. (Be aware that your use of IDL will then depend upon our server functioning correctly and your computers being continuously connected the Bloomberg network.)
