C/C++test can run on either a local or a network license:

Network License

To activate your network license:

  1. Ensure that DTP is enabled and properly configured; see Connecting to DTP. Connecting to DTP automatically configures your network license.
  2. Click Parasoft in the menu bar and choose Options (Visual Studio) or Preferences (Eclipse).

  3. Select License.
  4. Ensure that the Network option is enabled.

  5. (optional) Enable the Borrow option and specify how long you need to "borrow" the license, i.e. use it when you will not have access to DTP (for example, because you expect to be working from home or traveling). Licenses can be  borrowed from 1 hour to 14 days.
  6. Select the license edition you want to use from the Edition drop-down menu.
  7. Click Apply.

Advanced Network License Configuration

Configuring advanced network license settings allows you to obtain the network license from secondary instance of DTP or a standalone License Server.

  1. Go to Parasoft> Options(Visual Studio) or Preferences (Eclipse)> License.

  2. Click the Configure... link.
  3. Enable the Use an alternative License Server option in the popup dialog that opens.
  4. Configure the connection.

    a) To use a license from a standalone License Server:

    - Specify the host where your standalone License Server is deployed. If your server uses the HTTPS protocol, precede the hostname with https://.

    - Specify the port. The port number depends on your Tomcat settings (the default is 8080).

    (warning) Do not use authentication.

    b) To use a license from secondary DTP:
               - Specify the hostname.
               - Specify the port (the default is 443 or 8443).

               - Enable the Use authentication option.
               - Provide the username and password.


  5. Click OK in the dialog box.
  6. Click Apply in the main License page.

(info) If the Use configured DTP settings option is enabled, the license will be obtained as normal – from the DTP server you configured for your development testing workflow (see Connecting to DTP). This option is enabled by default.

(info) Borrowing a license is only supported when obtaining license from Parasoft DTP. It is not supported for the standalone version of License Server.

Local License

To configure the local license:

  1. Click Parasoft in the menu bar and choose Options (Visual Studio) or Preferences (Eclipse).

  2. Select License.
  3. Enable the Local option.
  4. Complete the Password field with the password you obtained from Parasoft.
  5. Click Apply.

Contact your Parasoft representative should you experience any issues with your license.
