RoboDK License - Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q: My Network license is not working. Why?

A: Network licenses require internet connection. Internet connection from RoboDK Software may be blocked by your computer or corporate Network. Make sure to check the following:

  • Add a Firewall rule to allow RoboDK to connect to server using TCP/IP protocol (port 80).
  • Use a Proxy server if your network requires it (in Help-License-Proxy settings). Contact your Network administrator to get this information.
  • Your Antivirus may block RoboDK from checking the license. Disable your antivirus to see if this is the case and add a rule to allow RoboDK if necessary.
