The following notes provide a general overview. For more detailed information, see the Licensing Guide for your product.
You can install most Autodesk products for a trial period of 30 days to evaluate the product. If you purchase a license, it is configured as either stand-alone or network, and for a specific number of users. These license types are briefly described as follows:
- A stand-alone license is intended for use by one person. The licensed products can be installed on two computers, as long as both instances are not running concurrently.
- A multi-seat stand-alone license is intended to support a specified maximum number of users, but it can be installed on a larger number of computers for convenient access.
- A network license supports a specified number of users who are connected to a network. The Network License Manager is installed on one or more servers on the network to manage the distribution of licenses to users.
Network License Server Models
If you are using a network license, choose the server configuration for the Network License Manager that was specified at the time of license purchase:
- Single License Server
One server manages all licenses on the network.
- Distributed License Server
Licenses are distributed across a pool of multiple servers in the network. You enter the name of each server in the pool.
- Redundant License Server
Three servers are available to authenticate each license. You enter the names of the three servers.
