Edit: License files are stored at X:\ProgramData\Electronic Arts\EA Services\License and are generated unique for each PC, am I right? So you can't just copy them to another PC?
For now, yes, you have to use Origin to download and install Battlefield 3.
We will be providing a custom tool, powered by Outcome, to allow you to download and install the server without having to install Origin.

If i would like to host a server locally i could use one client on my machine to host a server and another client on my machine to join it. My machine would become dedicated server and client at the same time.
Another possibility would be to host the server on a dedicated machine within the network. Simple.
But: Can a client host a game and join it at the same time ? Like in CS, where you are able to host a game (being the host) and play at the same time ?
Also, is that backendless connection still on the roadmap ?
You are able to host a server and join it from the same computer.
However, the client cannot yet function in listen-server mode (host and join itself).
This is a planned feature for allowing backend-less LAN support in the future.
