How to Access Ansys licensing when working remotely

Overview

The following outlines options for Ansys users to be able to work remotely with regards to licensing and remote desktop access. This includes situations where users may be traveling or temporarily working offsite.

Ansys Licensing Background

Ansys applications use a floating (network) license which can be shared across a group of users/computers connected to the same network. The Ansys applications and licensing consist of the following 3 components:

  1. The Ansys License Manager application: This software is typically installed on only a single server or workstation at a company and must always be running to handle license check out/check-in requests. Preferrably this designated computer should run 24/7. The Ansys License Manager can co-exist with other application license managers on the same server.
  2. The Ansys license file: This is a text file which will be provided by SimuTech or Ansys to install into the Ansys License Manager (which will be running on the license server). This file contains your "keys" which are unique to your company and your license server. These keys make up your pool of licenses, and control which licenses and how many will be available to users.
  3. The Ansys applications: Ansys applications (i.e. Workbench, Mechanical, Electronics Desktop, CFX, Fluent, Discovery, etc.) can be installed on many workstations on the same network and are configured to checkout/check-in licenses from the license server.

*Note: The Ansys License Manager and Ansys applications can be installed on the same computer, but is generally not recommended in a multi-user environment. Some Ansys applications use a subscription-based license, which is not covered here.
