Licensing Models for Cloud Access Software
Cloud Access Software is supported by two licensing models. Each model requires a specific license type:
- Teradici Cloud Licensing Service: These licenses should be used if your PCoIP agent has access to the internet.
- License Server based licenses: These licenses should be used if your PCoIP agent runs in a restricted environment and does not have access to the internet.
Most PCoIP deployments can take advantage of the automated Teradici Cloud Licensing Service which eliminates the complexity of on-premises licensing infrastructure. If your deployment cannot use cloud licensing, either because the site is not connected to the public internet or local management of licenses is necessary then License Server based licensing may be the appropriate licensing model.
Whitelisting the Licensing URLs
If the remote workstation does not have internet access you can whitelist the licensing URLs and and still use cloud licensing, see Teradici Cloud Licensing - Whitelisting FAQ
