time limited? Hmm, never heard of this (though it may be a rented license and therefore it could be time-limited...support should be able to tell you more about this).
Anyway, afaik the only way to handle floating licenses is via a license server. A floating license to my understanding is simply a license that is "floating" in the given environement and is not explicitly linked to a certain C4D installation. So if the license server covers 4 floating licenses and the customers pipeline has 100 seats with C4D installed, only 4 licenses can be simultaneously used while it does not matter which 4 of the 100 seats do so. The license can "float" to any of the seats but only 4 at a time.
In the end, only the license server serial matters. That is my understanding and that is how I handle it. But the support should be able to give you a more definite answer.
Hope that helps
