Ways to install Tecplot

Answer

Connecting Tecplot to the Network license server

Users running off the Network license server won't need to be concerned about updating the license annually as it will be done by the server administrators.

  • On first launch select Network license server in the licensing dialog
  • Enter the License server name available through the IS&T Tecplot page and leave the port number unchanged, click OK

Users off of the MIT-network will need a Roaming License

Users with roaming licenses will need to update before the license expiration date available through the IS&T Tecplot page.  Users must be renewed on or before the expiration date in the license file for the software to continue to function.

  • Select Help -> License Roaming, pick a roaming expiration date and click Begin Roam
    • Note: You will need to initiate this while on the network and use the Cisco VPN if you're off-campus.
    • The roaming license can be set for a specific length of time, or for the remainder of the current license year, up to the August 31 expiration date.
      The next year; and every subsequent year they are here, they will need to connect to the license server after the license has been updated and request a new roaming license.

To renew an existing standalone license

  • Select Help -> Tecplot 360 Ex Licensing
  • Select Network license server in the licensing dialog
  • Enter the License server name and leave the port number unchanged. Click OK.
  • Get a Roaming License
    • Select Help -> License Roaming, pick a roaming expiration date and click Begin Roam
      • Note: You will need to initiate this while on MITnet or use the Cisco VPN if you're off-campus
