License Server Help

Proxy should manage outgoing connections in isolated environment

Issue:

License Server can't contact JetBrains because it doesn't follow redirects provided by proxy.

Solution:

Due to security reason it is required for the license server to be able to specify connection point itself. If connection is made via proxy, proxy is required to be transparent and requires to allow the server to reach JetBrains resources with all data passed as is including certificates provided by JetBrains resources.

The following configuration might be considered as possible solution:

  • License server software is installed on the computer with access to the Internet but without access to internal computers of your organisation.

  • Developers' machines can connect computer with license server but can't connect to the Internet.

Described configuration also known as DMZ (Demilitarized Zone) will work to let license server contact JetBrains and to keep developers' computers offline in the same time. If the configuration is not possible there is alternative licensing option for offline usage - offline activation code which works for products installed in isolated environment. They can be distributed as described in Licensing and Purchasing FAQ.
