Active Licenses

The section shows the count of required and owned licenses for the management of devices, users and users with extended rights. Including the last license adding date. Every license addition rewrites the original one. Licenses are not added up. 

License Device S/N for License Generation

One of the connected devices (2N IP intercom, Access Unit, etc.) is used for license generation. Send the serial number to your distributor. A license will be generated and remain valid as long as the license device is connected (the device is used as a hardware key). When the license device is disconnected, a protective period will start running to keep the 2N® Access Commander active. After the protective period, all the devices switch into the negative state and a new license has to be generated or the license device has to be reconnected to 2N® Access Commander.

License Adding

The section helps you add a new license by reading the license file from your PC disk. 

System without License

For testing purposes, a license will become active on the server upon installation with the following parameters: 

  • 1 device 
  • 5 users
  • unlimited functions

License Expiration

A license expires when the license device is disconnected from 2N® Access Commander for a long time. The time during which 2N® Access Commander is functional depends on the time during which the license device was connected. The longer the connection time the longer the reconnection timeout. See the license detail for the license expiration date and time. 



When the license expires, all the devices are switched into the inactive mode. Once a new license is added, first activate the device for which the license has been generated. The other devices cannot be activated until this license device is activated.
