License a host disconnected from internet


#1

Hello,
Is it possible to trial VB on a server that is not able to connect to the internet?
Thanks in advance!

Do you have a proxy server that the server can connect to? If so, set the environment variable VB_LICENSE_PROXY to the address of the proxy server (it needs to be an HTTPS proxy server).

Thanks for the reply @gchen . Unfortunately we don’t have anything like that. I wish we had a machine in a DMZ or something, but the project specification is quite sesitive to having ANY web connectivity! I might have to configure another test host for trialling, but this licensing scenario would be a show-stopper for our production environment. Are there any other licensing arragements you could offer?

Thanks!

It is possible to activate a trial/paid license without internet. When you’re ready to try it on this host, I’ll send you instructions for offline activation.
