Installation PLATE-BUCKLING RFEM RSTAB RX-TIMBER SHAPE-MASSIVE SHAPE-THIN

Is it possible to access an RFEM/RSTAB license using the Internet?

The License Manager (network dongle) is installed on a server with a public IP address or FQDN.

Answer

VPN Connection:

Ask your administrator to check if you have the permission to log on the server by VPN (Virtual Private Network).

If you have the Internet connection, you can set up a VPN connection. From now on, the access to RFEM/RSTAB (insofar as you have used the authorization file for the network dongle) should be possible.

Find more information about the network dongle in the document below. In case of questions, our technical support service is at your disposal.
