In general, every computer in the network can be used, as long as its operating system is at least Windows XP (SP2) and other computers can access it via TCP/IP-Protocol. The best way is to use a computer that is constantly in operation and has a working backup system.
Transferring the server license to other computers (like the individual workstations) is not possible. Instead, you can borrow licenses.
Configure the License Manager to allow a workstation access to the BUSINESS License Server. If this computer is to be removed permanently from the license server is has to be logged off the license server. Then access to a local workstation license is possible.
If you don´t know the IP address use the command prompt to detect the IP address of the server you want to set up: Click Windows Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. Enter IPCONFIC and press Enter-Taste. The IP address will be listed in the dialogue.
If you use a network license and your network administrator allows the function to borrow a license you can borrow a license from the Autodesk License Server to use DATAflor LANDXPERT for a certain time in which your computer is not linked to the network.
Your license will be returned automatically to the license server after the expiry of the return date that you set up at the start of borrowing the license. You can also return the license before the actual expiry date.
With the BUSINESS License Server you can lend network licenses to a local computer to work with the program on the computer when it is not connected to the network. You can return borrowed licenses before the expiry date to the license server.
After confirming with [OK] the license will be transferred to the local computer and be used there without network connection.
Should the license not be returned to the license server it expires after 30 days at the local computer and is automatically available for the network again.
The work with DATAflor LANDXPERT becomes even more effective when all users are able to access the same bases and data. With the tool Database and network access the local workstation can be adjusted to the network environment. In this case, DATAflor LANDXPERT uses the allocated configuration.
