Tekla Tedds 2015 is a powerful software for structural engineering calculations and design. It allows you to create and customize your own calculations, or use the built-in library of over 300 ready-made calculations. Tekla Tedds 2015 can be activated with either a local computer locked license or a server (network) license. In this article, we will show you how to activate Tekla Tedds 2015 with a server license.
A server license is a type of license that can be activated (and used) on one machine (this machine will become the 'license server'), and any other machine connected to your network can also use the license. This means that you only need one product activation key (PAK) for your entire network, and you can share the license among multiple users. A server license is ideal for large organizations or teams that need to use Tekla Tedds 2015 on multiple computers.
How to activate Tekla Tedds 2015 with a server license?
To activate Tekla Tedds 2015 with a server license, you need to follow these steps:
Install the License Server Manager on the machine that you want to use as your license server. You can download the License Service from here[^1^]. If Tekla Tedds 2015 is also used on this machine, make sure to include the third option during the installation.
Launch the License Server Manager (Start > All Apps > Tekla > License Server Manager) and select the Activate page. Follow the on-screen instructions to activate your PAK. If your PAK code begins with \"42334\" or \"52334\", then it is a server license[^1^]. Close the License Server Manager when done.
Configure Tekla Tedds 2015 on each client machine to look for a server license. To do this, go to Start > All Apps > Tekla > System and User settings - this will launch the Software Licensing Configuration.

Select System > License Server page on the left, then on the right click Find - this should find your license server. Alternatively, you can manually type the IP address of the server. If your machine is the license server, you can type \"localhost\" (without quotes) as your server name[^1^]. Close the Licensing Configuration and launch Tekla Tedds 2015.
