In order to open and use Ansys software, you must be able to connect and remain connected to your Ansys License server. This means the client computer needs to be on the same network as the license server. When working from home or out of the office, it's common to use a VPN in order to access the license server.
- Setting up a VPN is a common solution to this problem. While SimuTech can't directly setup and configure the necessary firewall/network equipment in your environment, we'd be happy to work with your IT Administrator to insure the proper ports are open and to test connectivity. Your IT Administrator may find the following helpful:
- It's also possible to borrow a license from your license server without the need for a VPN. For more information, please see - HOW TO - Borrow an Ansys License.
