Trying to find any info on whether Quartus is able to be used through any of the following options without breaking the software license agreement. Thanks for any input.
- Brokered connection to a remote desktop
Students connect to a broker service which then connects them directly (one-to-one) to a computer in the labs/classrooms. In this case the remote desktop is the same computer students use when physically visiting a computer lab or classroom. The software is installed on the physical computer and is not virtual. We would simply redirect a student to a lab computer similar to RDP.
- Virtual OS
The application is installed on a virtual operating system hosted by a server. Students connect and a virtual OS is delivered to their device. In most cases the software is limited by network licensing.
- Virtual application
The first option seem okay and possible for you student and I would suggest that. Assuming that broker service is like VNC Viewer? The Quartus license depend on your NIC ID that associate with the remoted machine therefore I think should not be an issue as you are remoting machine that has a valid license and NIC ID. The rest I am not sure maybe we can have a quick call on this for more details.
Thank you for the response,
They would be using VMWare Horizons installed on their computer and connecting remotely from their house, onto a computer on campus that already has the software installed. The license is managed a by a server.
Thank you for our help!
