    Question Can't connect to server after adding licensekey.dat

    I think this might be an odd problem, but I've been trying TS3 for some time now. Recently I got a Non-Profit License so that I could LAN in a larger group than 32.
    The problem started when I was issued the licensekey.dat file to put in the same folder as the server exe.

    I'm relied on for networking by our LANs and my PC typically acts as the server for most things including TS3. That being the case, I use the client on the same computer. Normally I connect the TS3 client to the server on the computer using the computer's name or the loopback address (127.0.0.1), but whenever I add the licensekey.dat file to the server directory, then start the server, I can't connect the client to the server anymore. If I remove the file, it works fine, add it back & it stops letting me connect again (I restart the server every time of course). I can't figure it out.

    The system is Win7 x64, I have the 64-bit server in C:\program files\ts3 server dir and run the server with UAC admin privileges always. The client and server are both the latest & the computer is not connected to any network. Would sincerely appreciate help.
    Thanks

    My apologies, I'm using beta 28, not 30.
    Okay here's my server log from when I tried to connect with the licensekey.dat file present:

    The license port is open (2008 TCP) ?

    DNS?
    I'm trying to use it on an isolated computer (no network), using 127.0.0.1, does it need internet?
    If so what happens if one needs to use it in a LAN with no internet access?

    Yes internet is required. Your license file must checked at each server start.

    For use a server in a newtork without internet access, you must get an AAL license.

    Hmph... all these complications...
    I'll have to try find a way to temporarily connect it to the net during server start... maybe through my cellphone or something.
    Anyway, thanks.

    Maybe I'll just look at mumble/murmur again and see what my options are there.

    The server checks this on start and nearly every hour, while it is running.

    Why is that even necessary though?
    It's a non-profit license after all, so what does it have to check really? (That's a rhetorical question, don't answer.)
    Anyway, it's quite dissapointing for the parts of the world that have difficulty with internet connectivity that one can't have a simple offline LAN without all sorts of server checks by what would otherwise seem to be a free to use software (for non-profit).

    It is necessary because there are lots of commercial entities out there trying to use free non-profit licenses... We've learned from all the trouble we had with TeamSpeak 2's licensing and accounting system. All our three main licenses (ATHP, AAL, NPL) are online-only by default.

    However... If you really need an offline license, please contact [email protected] and I'm sure our sales team will find a solution for your issue.
