How do I use Tekla Structures License Server and multi-user server with VPN connection
Can I use Tekla Structures License Server and multi-user server with a VPN connection?
Both licensing and multi-user are possible through a VPN connection with one major requirement: high reliability of the VPN connection.
You can experience performance issues when there is a slow network communication. If your VPN connection is stable and fast enough, you can use it for both licensing and multi-user with some additional requirements:
- Tekla Structures License Server: Two TCP ports should be defined in
tekla.licand opened in a firewall software on the server. Here you can find a step-by-step instruction.
- Tekla Structures multi-user server: By default, the multi-user server uses TCP port 1238. The port should be opened in a firewall software on the server.
Therefore, if your client computers have access to the server's ports mentioned above, licensing and multi-user services should work fine.
