Difference between Standalone and Network Licenses

Stand-Alone License

A stand-alone license supports one or more Autodesk products for an individual user. Similarly, a multi-seat stand-alone license supports a specific maximum number of users. While the software can be installed on additional computers in your facility, the number of concurrent users cannot exceed the number of licensed seats.

Network License

A network license supports a specific maximum number of users who are connected to the same network. A software utility known as the Network License Manager (NLM) issues licenses to users, up to the number of licenses purchased. At this point, no more computers can run the Autodesk product until a license is returned to the NLM.
