So as I mentioned there are two different license modes.
Workstation: License is on the workstation. You can connect to ANY IBM i
Server and edit source code there. Can be your server, my server,
customer server etc. Wonderful for consultants and independent
developers. Also works well for those with laptops that are always with
Corporate: I almost said 'Server' but that's not really it. RDi is still
loaded on the workstation but in order to be used it must obtain a token
from your site. Typically one central server dispatches the tokens for
your enterprise. When you have a token then you may edit. If you have 10
guys and 5 tokens then only 5 at a time may edit. This is also great for
use at home or laptop or desktop as you can load on all at no extra
cost, just remember to exit at the office our that token remains in use
so when you get home you may be stuck!
If this is the version on your workstation and you connect to MY server
then you will not be able to edit because I cannot grant you a token.

Here is something not quite clear to me. Who "owns" the license? I am
not talking about who writes the check.
Lets say ABC Company buys a license for John Smith, and John Smith loads
RDi on to his workstation at the office and at home. Apparently it is OK
if he uses either one, so long as he is using only one at a time. But
now lets suppose John Smith connects to a box owned by XYZ Company?
Is that OK?
