What is an activatable license? / What is a certificate license?

What is a standalone license?

A standalone license is for use on a single computer.

Most standalone licenses are of the activatable type: you receive an Activation ID, and you must activate it against our server. See Activating Palisade 6.x/7.x/8.x Standalone Software. You must also deactivate the license as part of transferring it, or before you wipe the computer's hard drive for any reason; see Transferring Standalone Software 6.x/7.x/8.x to a New Computer.

For users in ultra-secure areas, who cannot perform the usual activation process, Technical Support can change your activatable license to a certificate type. See "Manual Activation — No Internet" in Activating Palisade 6.x/7.x/8.x Standalone Software.

For the full license terms of standalone licenses, please see End User License Agreement (EULA).

What is a Concurrent Network license?

Please see Overview of 6.x/7.x/8.x Concurrent Network Licenses.

Is remote access possible? I have the software installed on my office computer, and I want to log in from my laptop and run the software.

Remote access is allowed for Concurrent Network licenses, but not for any other type. See "Using ... via remote access or Terminal Services is not allowed ...".

Do you offer a corporate license?

Concurrent Network licenses suit most corporations. However, please discuss any special requirements with your Palisade sales manager. He or she will work with you to come up with a software and license solution that will work well in your environment.
