Will network license work on peer to peer network

The network license information states multiple users can access and use ProgeCAD from multiple PC on a network as long as the number of simultaneous users does not exceed the licensed number.

We are a 5 person firm and do not have any server software (like MS Exchange).  We only run a peer to peer network on our LAN so we do not have a "server"  On our LAN, all users can see and use files or programs on one PC we call our server.

Does the ProgeCAD network licensing system work on a peer to peer network such that if we install it on one PC, we can use it from any PC on the LAN as long as we do not have more people running the software than licensed?

Yes, the network version of progeCAD will work in the scenario described. The NLM module runs on a PC that can be accessed by the other client progeCAD's on the network. Access is allowed by ip address (internal or in wide area scenarios the exterior ip, as long as the route is mapped through the router), and a port number. As long as each PC running the progeCAD client can talk to the PC running the nlm module then the software will run fine. You can even run the nlm module on the same machine a client progeCAD is running.
