ADLM & Win2K pro

Will ADLM only work on NT server, or could you have a peer to peer Win2K Pro
environment, with ADLM running on one machine and serving up licences to the
others? For a small office, say 5 people, P2P makes a lot of sense, as does
having ADLM to save on licences.

Also, has anyone experimented with ADLM via a VPN connection over DSL or
Cable. It might be a great way to allow home use.

Gordon

Gordon -

adlm will run on 2k pro or server. It's not listed in the tech doc(TS18368), but the tech
doc is out of date. Just make sure that the machine that it's installed on isn't someone
who likes to re-boot every 2 seconds or everyone will constantly have their licenses
dropped.

Yes it is possible to use a vpn connection to get autocad licenses, but could (as Kevin
Nehls just pointed out) be a violation of the autodesk license agreement. To make the vpn
connection work you will have to have some type of name resolution set up so that the
"server" can contact the client by host name and vice-versa.

Hi Jason,

It works fine on a Windows 2000 Pro Server. As long as you only have on NIC
card and no RAS services;-)... As far as running over VPN, it has never
been tested.

Hope this helps.
