Is anyone using tsNet external with LCserver?

Hi Matthias,

Up until 8.1.10, there was only one version of LC server.  It reports itself to the tsNet external as the “Indy” edition.  If you use the business edition of tsNet with it, it will fail.

You can use ‘the editionType’ to determine if LC server is Indy (commercial) or Business (professional).

Regards,

Charles
