How to access your Chaos software from home
To make sure everyone working from home can access their software remotely, here are some helpful tips to get you set up:
Connecting through VPN
If your studio has a VPN set up, you can access your licenses remotely right from your company’s network. We recommend that you ask your IT department for details on how to connect.
As long as your VPN connection allows access to the Chaos license server IP address or hostname, it should work the same as if you were in the office. Once connected, you can check the status by entering the IP address or hostname in your web browser, followed by the port number 30304. For example, http://IP_ADDRESS:30304/. When successful, you’ll see the License Server Interface page.
Using your licenses locally
To access your licenses locally, you can simply install the Chaos License Server on your local machine and sign in to your Chaos account online. If your IT department manages your Chaos account, we recommend you consult them for help with the installation.
With the Chaos License Server running on your local machine, you can set the Primary license server address to 127.0.0.1 and leave the port set to the default value 30304.
Rendering with Chaos Cloud
During this time, we've lowered our Chaos Cloud pricing per credit and removed packages for better accessibility.
