Licence types

Network licence

Network licences are the prefered option. As no manual intervention is required, you can just install it and use it.

Network licenses are suited for use on machines that spend hte majority of their time on the ANU network. Network licences include a "borrow" feature enabling you to disconnect your computer from the network for a period of time and still use Origin. Currently the maximum time you can borrow a licence for is 28 days.

Stand alone licence

Stand alone licences suit computers that must use Origin while disconnected from the ANU network on a regular basis. If this isn't the case then the Network Licence is highly recommended.

Standalone licenses must be requested and generated through a manual process, and they must be renewed each year.
