I have 3 PCs. One in use at any time. SLVPN licence?
« on: May 12, 2015, 11:44:15 PM »
I've used Avast Free AV since before it was even called "Avast". I'm sure you needed to know that!
If I purchase a subscription to SLVPN can I run it on more than one PC? - not necessarily simultaneously although that would be simpler.
Thanks.

For PC's, it is one license for each PC if you want them online simultaneously.
You can run Secureline license Service on more then one PC, BUT not at the same time
I've read there is something new coming with regard to Licensing however I'm not clear on the details as yet. :)

Thanks for the prompt response.
 
To be clear, can I install on three PCs and only activate on the one currently in use?

That'd be fine by me unless it requires repetitive install/uninstall as it's sometimes just a matter of minutes between using different boxes. Could someone kindly clarify this for me?

Yes.
Thanks!
Sorry to be obtuse but, to be clear, is this simply a question of "throwing a switch" in the application when moving from my coffee table PC to an office workstation in another room?

As explained above by Schmidthouse, no switches. ;)

Think of it as a service that can be an option on more then on PC. However the service will not run on more then one PC at a time with only 1 License
Thanks Asyn  ;)

OK, thanks everyone.
To summarise, am I correct to say that the application is aware of the local network and will only run on a single PC of the three. Then the question arises, should all 3 be running and connected to the network, which one? I would have expected this to be selectable.
I'll probably buy a short licence and give it a try.
