Using Autodesk subscription products without an internet connection.
Autodesk software runs on your computer, not on the web. Most of the Autodesk desktop products on subscription don't need to be online to use the software. An Internet connection is needed initially to install and activate the product.
Subscription with Single User Access
Autodesk products with single-user access called "Named User" must connect to the internet every 30 days to verify that your subscription is still current (users will receive a reminder 7 days prior to having to reconnect to the Internet). The 30 day time period is not a set date such as the first of the month or the end of the month. It is 30 days from the date the software was activated.
Subscription with Multi-User Access
Autodesk products with multi-user access (also called network licenses) do not require an internet connection for activation as licenses are assigned over a network by a network license server.
Cloud-based Products and Cloud Services
Some Autodesk software products also give you access to certain cloud services that are not installed on your computer. These may include optional services such as cloud rendering, collaboration tools, and secure storage. Autodesk also offers certain products that are available only as a cloud service. Cloud-based products require an internet connection.
