The COM License Bridge for SAP Business One 8.8 connects to the SAP Business One CORBA License Manager. It “wraps” the CORBA interface which is exposed by the SAP Business One License Service since version 8.8 with a COM wrapper. When trying to establish DCOM connections from client PCs to servers that are running in a different domain or workgroup, security issues are common problems. Therefore the License Service was moved from DCOM technology to CORBA with the SAP Business one 2005 release. With CORBA such issues do not exist since it is not tied to Windows authentication.
