Hi All, My job has purchased A2K Network version, I am the only drafter
for now
and AutoDesk cust. service said I could install at home as long as A2K
is only running on one PC at a time. We only have a single licenes at
this time.
My Question can the network ver. be installed on a stand alone PC ?

Thanks,
RD

Ralph,
Yes and I'm not sure, you could install a copy at home and get a license
from the AdLM server using DUN (dial up networking), this works because I
have a setup like this. As for just installing the network copy like a
single install, I really can't tell. I believe you would need another
License key and would have to setup the AdLM on your home machine. Which of
course would give you a different server code.

Good Luck
Jon

I've been told...but not tested, that you can use a VPN type setup with the
ACADSERVER variable to use a network copy of the software with a remote
license server. If you only have one copy, it seems to make more sense to
just install at home and go with it. With more seats, and more likelihood
that multiple people will be on the software, we've been thinking about
testing the dial-up capabilities.

I think if you search the the newsgroups for VPN and my name you'll find
some info regarding how often the ADLM pings out and what ports to use. Good
luck!
