Connecting To A Network License

This topic will explain how to connect to a Network License that has been set up and activated on the DriveWorks License Manager.

If you are on a network managed by an IT Department, you may be behind a proxy, in which case you may need to find out your proxy details from whoever runs your network.

A network license code must have been added and activated to the Floating License Server (found in DriveWorks License Management) and the Floating License Server service must be running.

See Floating License Server Licenses for more information on configuring the network license server and adding licenses.
