Using TestExecute in Virtual Private Networks

Applies to TestExecute 15.40, last modified on May 21, 2024

This page is related to key-based licenses — a regular license type used in TestExecute 15.40. For information on the new ID-based license type, see SmartBear ID-based Licenses.

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 TestExecute workstations. By default, TestExecute’s 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 TestExecute workstations and specify the License Manager computer, to which TestExecute should connect:

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

  2. Select Configuration from the menu on the right. 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. You should enter the same address that you use to connect to this PC in VPN.

  5. Click Submit to apply the changes.
