Hi,

is it possible to install a license server on a different machine than the one I am working with and let my notebook ask the license server on that machine for a valid license?

The idea is to secure the usb token from suddenly disappearing in the office or not being able to work if I am in a train and realise that the usb stick is in my home office.

Is there a way to plug in the token, launch LW, remove the token and put it back into my backpack while I am able to work with LW?

Any ideas, best practice, etc. for such a situation?
Or is it impossible to separate the token from the machine which is running LW?

LW only looks for the dongle when Layout or Modeler starts up. Many times I have unplugged the dongle after LW has started. Of course if LW crashes, I have to plug it back in to restart the app.

Great, I will check if it works with my plugins.
At least 2 plugins check the dongle ID, but I think I can ignore that for now.

Thank you for this hint.
