Using TestComplete in Virtual Private Networks

Applies to TestComplete 15.65, last modified on June 26, 2024

This page refers to key-based licenses — a legacy license type used in TestComplete until version 15.48. For information on the current, ID-based license type, see SmartBear ID-based Licenses.

TestComplete Floating User licenses and TestExecute can be used in Virtual Private Networks (VPN). VPN means that computers work with each other as they are included in the same local network.

However, you may need to modify the search settings on TestComplete or TestExecute workstations. By default, the TestComplete licensing subsystem searches for the License Manager using broadcast messages. Depending on the VPN configuration, these messages may not function in virtual private networks. In this case, you can modify the search settings on TestComplete workstations and specify the License Manager computer, to which TestComplete (or TestExecute) should connect:

  1. On your TestComplete or TestExecute workstation, open the URL http://localhost:1947. This will open the Sentinel Admin Control Center.

  2. Select Configuration from the menu on the left. This will open the configuration pages.

  3. Switch to the Access to Remote License Managers page.

  4. In the Specify Search Parameters box of this page specify the name or IP address of the License Manager PC.

    Note: You should enter the same address that you use to connect to this PC in VPN.
  5. Click Submit to apply the changes.
