Our company wants to hire Revit freelancers to do some temporary work for us by telecommuting, and is looking for the best way to provide temporary Revit Architecture 2010 licenses.

According to IT, our corporate server does not allow outside computers to access our network.

So, since apparently we can't use network licenses, we are thinking the best way is to use the 'License Transfer Utility'.  We will provide our contractors with stand-alone licenses, and have them use the 'License Transfer Utility' when they are finished.  (I guess we will just hold their last paycheck until they've transferred their licenses back.)

Are there any problems with this?  Other solutions out there we haven't thought of?  Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

i'm not 100% sure, but i think the license will expire on the date set when you borrow it. never borrowed one.

Let them buy their own license? lucky guys!!! ha2... anyways, PLU = portable license utility will let you share your license to your freelancer but you won't be able to use the revit (with the same license) at the same time. I don't think there's any expiration on PLU... they just have to "send" it back. I'm not 100% sure either... try and let us know.

Simply read "License Borrowing" in your HELP- It is all covered.  There is an expiration date.

I'm sorry... my comment was for stand alone license only and not for network. It actually transfer your standalone license from one computer to another and you can't use it at the same time.

I would be interested in being one of your temporary telecommuters as I currently do this type of work.....and I have my own license of Revit Architecture on subscription.  I can be reached at rcjarch@charter.net.
