Use network licenses from outside the HZB network
If you want to use licensed software outside of the HZB intranet, for which our license servers grant network licenses, you can only do this via an existing SSH tunnel connection.
The external use described here is only possible for the following programs:
The requirement for such connection is an additional remote password for the personal HZB IT account. The password must be set (once) via this web application before the first use.
The use of software licensed by HZB on private devices is not permitted.
We recommend the use of Putty to establish the SSH connection. The program is freely available and can be downloaded from the manufacturer's website.
Depending on the program (Origin, IDL, MatLab, Mathematica) further preparations must be made and the connection with Putty must be configured accordingly.
