Check out remote commuter licenses

Remote commuter licenses are useful when NV Test Manager cannot access the AutoPass License Server, for example, if the server port is not accessible.

When using remote commuter licenses, licenses are held by the AutoPass License Server and are checked out to the NV License Manager for use by your NV Test Manager machine.

A license is checked out for a specified number of days, at the end of which the license is automatically returned to the AutoPass License Server. You can return a license early, if desired, following the instructions below.

      • Download the file by clicking Download <file name>.

      • Enter an email address and click Send Email using AutoPass's built-in email feature.
