Internet Access Permissions

Certain features in HSMAdvisor require Internet access.

Such as all Floating License types require Internet connection at least once a month to our licensing server.

Permanent Licenses do not depend on licensing server for license authorizations, so they do not require Internet access.

We care for our customers and we want them to receive latest updates that improve stability, performance and overall user experience.

Thus HSMAdvisor will, by default, connect to the Internet upon startup to check for updates and notify our users when updates are available.
You can turn this feature off on "Settings" tab.

Whenever a firewall or anti-virus is installed on computer, you may be prompted by it to either deny or allow HSMAdvisor Internet connection.

It is advised to allow HSMAdvisor to connect to the Internet as you may be denied your Floating License renewal or you may not receive notifications about important updates.
