FAQ: How does WebDepot transfer licenses online?

WebDepot communicates with the CodeMeter License Manager/Container Software on the computer to be licensed using encrypted HTTPS via TCP port 443.

FAQ: Computer to be licensed is not internet accessible, how can I license the computer?

Use of WebDepot for online licensing requires Internet access and ability to use HTTPS.

Offline computers can be licensed using a File-base license transfer. This is done by generating a context file on the (offline) computer to be licensed, loading it with licenses from a License Ticket ID in WebDepot (by using a online PC) and returning the file to the offline computer. These steps are described in detail in the Station-IC user manual.
