I use AutoCAD 2006 NLM on my workstation. Sometimes I need to borrow license to my laptop. Question: When I borrow license to laptop with open AutoCAD on workstation how long is the grace period for AutoCAD on workstation?

Your laptop and your workstation are two separate computers. If you are
using a network license, they work separately, just like two different
people.

Assuming you have more than one license available on the network license
server, you can leave AutoCAD open on your workstation for as long as you
wish. When you connect your laptop to the license server, you get another
separate license, which you can then borrow. In this case, you have used up
two of the available licenses from the server.

Does that answer your question?

Hi,

also assuming that there's only one license in the pool, it should be impossible to borrow the license while the application is running on an other workstation as the borrow-feature needs the application to be started and to find a free license in order to work at all...

Cheers,

Petri, Finland
