Networked SOLIDWORKS licenses work great for sharing among users when you have access to the network. How do you take a license on the road though? Using the Borrow License feature, of course. A license can be borrowed up to 30 days and returned early if needed. To avoid having a license in limbo, between the user’s machine and the server, avoid using VPN. Using an options file, a network administrator can restrict borrowing to a shorter period, a percentage of total license or block it altogether.
