    Don't know exactly but there has to be 2 things
    (1)There shold be unique key for each dongle
    (2) there should be either port-reading or API to
    check the presence of right kind of dongle

    There are companies that make the dongles and write drivers for them. I
    have used Rainbow and Hasp. I prefer Hasp. Their web site is www.aks.com

    Look at Az-Tech Software at www.az-tech.com they have a good product and
    just as important, they have good support services. The flexibility of their
    dongle is very good and has many features such as permitting operation only
    during specified dates, number of application runs, etc.

    Hi,

    Yes, I've use Sentinel from Rainbow at www.rainbow.com (if I recall
    correctly).

    I have a suggestion.... DON'T DO IT!!!!

    The outfit I'm presently working for has banned dongles.

    Way too many problems.

    Good luck finding customers who will put up with dongles.

    Just my opinion
