I want to know wich it is the best solution and why:
- Autocad2000 network for 6 workstation?
or
- 6 autocad licences for 6 computers?

How much cost both of the two solutions?

Thanks

Should be the same cost.

The network license method is more flexible - It'll also be quicker to
install if you do it right!.

Ultimately though it depends on what's right for the company - For example,
can you allocate a machine to be license server that you know is going to be
available all day every day? If not, you could be looking at having 6
AutoCADs down because the server is being re-booted.

Your best course of action would be to speak to your re-seller and get the
full pros and cons before you decide.

Hope that helps

I would not even concider singel solutions..

If your server is reliable (and it should if you work against a shared
directory containing your projectfiles of use the server to back up the
system for example) there are only one argument for buying single
licences... Your users will be able to install ACAD at home or on a portable
solution witout adding licences !

The maintainence of those 6 licences will be MUCH easier with a floating
solution.

Good luck... it's always a nightmare to take that decition, either way it's
alway pros and cons.

Jay,

I agree with you, the software should only be put in a network pool. This
eliminates cost and maintenance to your company. I recently found out
though that AutoDesk's online registration tool has a bug. If you try to
register a network license it will generate a single node key. Any chance
someone at AutoDesk can look into getting this fixed so I don't have the
worry of users taking software home or bypassing the ADLM.

Thanks,
John.
