Don't be. Mathworks is not the only company with bad license servers and a
reputation to piss off people. Maplesoft was so kind to include and accept
all code brought in by mathematicians and the price only got higher for
each release because of the 'superb' algorithms. I never had to setup a
Matlab license server but Maple's one already pissed me off so badly that
I started looking at other stuff.
