Why can't I get a MATLAB license when using the campus VPN?

Before trying anything else, make sure you are running the VPN service as administrator.

If that still doesn't work, continue as administrator and do the following:

Navigate to your MATLAB installation folder. From there, go into the version folder, and then further into the licenses folder. For example:


In this folder is a text file named network.lic which contains the information needed to access the license provided by the university. Append " 38001" onto the end of the first line and save the file.
