The Network Manager does two things:
If you have purchased floating Indigo licences, the Network Manager hands out floating licences to computers on your network. However, you don't require floating licences to use the Network Manager for network rendering coordination.

Managing Network Rendering
Indigo supports network rendering, which means that additional computers (slaves) can help other computers (masters) render an Indigo scene.
The Network Manager can control and coordinate this network rendering, by assigning slaves to masters. This is ideal for an office or render farm situation where there are multiple masters and multiple slaves on the same network.
