  1. Start Altium.
  2. When Altium opens, you will notice that there is a warning that says “You are not using a valid License. Click Sign in to retrieve the list of available licenses.” There is also a note at the very bottom of the page that says “Not connected to private license server. You are not using any license.”
  3. If there is an option to “Reconnect to private license server”, click on this option. Otherwise click “Setup private license server.”
    Server name: altium.cse.umn.edu

    Server port: 21001
  4. Make sure that the server settings are the same as the settings shown in the table above, then click "OK"Highlight the server option that has a status of "OK."
  5. Click "Use."
