Just a suggestion for you at DHI: At my company, we operate with both corporate network licenses, and a few dongles.

However, it would be very useful, if it was possible to convert some network licenses to short term "take home"-licenses, for instance activated using a dongle.

In the same way that for instance MapInfo allows a "borrow license" function, where you specify, how many days you would like to borrow the network licence down on your local pc. And when you are done with your local license, you can return it to the common network license pool.

I hope you will consider this suggestion.

Try using a "Remote Desktop connection". I am able to work comfortably from home by logging in remotely to my office pc where the license is running.

Yes, I also use "Remote Desktop" often. It however doesn't solve the issue I'm addressing here.
Sometimes I have experienced a need to run long AutoCal runs (several weeks), and I have needed to log of the company network to avoid forced monthly software updates, which restarts my computer automatically.
In those cases it could be great if I could "borrow" some of the network licenses down to my local pc. Without having to use one of our few stand-alone licence dongles.
It would add more flexibility to our use of licenses.

To circumvent this issue, our modelling group has its own private network of several workstations and a domain user account across this network. Updates to the OS and the software are done by me through scripts, pretty handy.
