I know it is possible with the ILS UI elements and License Tracker application to authenticate licenses offline. However this is only a fallback for online authentication.
Our software is used in an industrial environment on machines without internet access, so offline authentication will be the default case.
Is it possible to configure ILS, especially the License Tracker, to use only manual authentication and thus completely eliminate the need for an authentication server?
Also, in this scenario it would be possible to spare our customers the need for entering a license code. We would then require from our customer a file that only contains the hardware ID of the target machine. Generation of the license code and authentication could then happen in one step.
What would be the effort to realize this authentication procedure with ILS and possibly the License Tracker?
