Check out commuter licenses

A commuter license is a floating license that requires an active connection to the AutoPass License Server for the time it takes to check out and download the license file.

Licenses are held by the AutoPass License Server and are checked out as necessary for use by your NV Test Manager machine. You can check out a license for a specified number of days, at the end of which it is automatically returned to the AutoPass License Server. You can return a license early, if desired.
