I coded a license server application. It communicates with the clients via TCP/IP, limits the number of simultaneous users of the main program. It works OK, however, it is not fully tested, has several bugs like; if the client hibernates server does not remove the user from active users list. When the connection is lost, main program crashes, the case should be handled.

Active communication (hand shaking) between the server and the client with a timer would be nice. Server asks client if the clients are still there every 30 sec ; same thing for the clients.

It has several security levels, they should be tested properly.

The server log saving function should be implemented (datagridview to tab delimited text file.)

System tray icon should be implemented:

Any other improvement suggestion would be appreciated.
