What is a commuter license?

You can check out (borrow) a seat from a network license so that it can be used for the number of days that you specify, on a machine that is not connected to the license server network. You can check out a seat to either:

  • A machine on your network (see Check out to a network machine below), so that Vicon Software can subsequently be used when the machine is no longer connected to your network; or
  • A machine that is not connected to your network (see Check out to a remote machine below)

When a commuter license is no longer needed, it is checked back in again, so that it can be used from the license server network as usual. Licenses are automatically checked in at the end of a specified check-out period, or can be manually checked in early (not applicable to remotely checked-out licenses).
