The Network license can be borrowed from any location
(you can borrow it from the license server to your laptop). Just please note, that the License Server
is by default using port 16720
so this should be accessible on the laptop (ideally by using secured VPN connection, but it's not necessary).
On your laptop, please set the network license to the IP of the server
/ server name
rather than finding it automatically. This can be done using the "Change License Mode
" wizard after setting Network license mode in Configure the Network License
If you'll be unable to borrow the license to your laptop, please check if it's a communication issue by using a TCP scanning tool (as nmap
) to test the server port from the laptop in this way:nmap -p 16720 <your-server-address>
It should return the following result:PORT STATE SERVICE
16720/tcp open unknown
If needed, you can also enable the debug mode
on the server, try to use the plug-in and send us the licserver.log.
The right network configuration is always very specific for any network as the correct set-up of the connection will depend on all firewall / anti-virus solutions used. Basically, you'll need to open the port 16720 on license sever for the remote user. It must be open both for TCP and UPD (for example Windows Firewall / anti-virus software could be blocking the connection for this port).
