❑MKMSDLRS is the "Server" application which is directly connected to the MKMS system database and processes all of the requests from MKMSDLRC, the Dealer Module Client Connection application, for Additions and/or Modifications to the Subscriber's data and their related Monitoring Information within the MKMS and MKMSCS programs.

✓If needed, additional Concurrent User licenses may be purchased based on your need for more than 5 "on-line" sessions taking place at the same time.
•To start the MKMSDLRS Dealer Server application, Double Click that Icon.
