Standard tools? A licence is a written agreemment to grant permission to use your software not a piece of functionality. Do you mean you are looking for some software-based way to enforce a licence? If so do you mean the licence to install the software on the server or a way of enforcing licencing per client connection?
I agree. Here's the link:
