Departments of TU can acquire network use rights for NX and single user use rights for Solid Edge using tubIT softwareportal (see servicebox).
It is necessary for the network use rights of NX, that the computer which should host the software is part of TU network in order to access the license server hosted by tubIT. For ordering use rights for NX and Solid Edge within the classroom license you are required to specify the IP addresses of the machines which should run the software. Alternatively you can provide the subnet the computer is part of. By default the software is provided as download but additional data mediums can be ordered (only together with the use rights!).


Ordering products within the Softwareportal that are part of the TU license agreement constitutes a formal contract between the customer and the TU. In relation to the customer only the conditions of use as specified in the adhering tubIT contract are applicable. Products acquired within TU agreements are excluded from the right of revocation.
