Allplan License Server provides effective management and optimum use of your licenses. The license server allows secure access to licenses in the corporate network, while offering flexible usage for licenses outside of the office. When a user starts the program in the network, the license server is queried for a free license. If available, the network provides the user a license to Allplan. Then when the user is finished, the license is checked back into the server and is made available to other users.
With the Allplan License Server security protection, Dongels which may be lost or stolen, are no longer necessary. The License Server can be administered via the web admin settings from a network client. The server can thus also be situated in the secured server room. The individual clients can be assigned different usage rights. For example, users can be granted the right to enable only the workstations that they actually need. Optionally, they can also be granted the right to import licenses from the server to their own computers so that they can be used beyond the network.
Economical use of licenses
The purchased licenses are installed on the server and are thus available to all the clients in the network. This leads to savings even with just a few workstations since all the necessary licenses do not have to be installed on every single client. Licenses that are not permanently in use can also be used by other client computers. The server licenses can be deployed very flexibly: either online in the network or offline for work outside the company. To do this, the client computer imports the neces - sary license from the server. Furthermore, using a network client, licenses can be “checked out” for a computer not part of the network.
The Allplan License Server lets you managed the licenses for all the workstations in the company net - work centrally. Licenses can be registered conventiently using a graphical user interface (web admin settings). Available licenses are clearly displayed with the current status. Various filters are available on the Allplan License Server for keeping tracking of processes. This way, you can always determine who used which licenses and when and whether it was online or offline.
The Allplan License Server can also be used on terminal servers.
