Licensing - Is there a limit to the geographical distance a user can be from the server when accessing a "Site license" for a LogiCORE IP feature?

Description

We have an employee/student that wants to VPN into the license server. Is this acceptable within our license agreement?

Is there a geographical limit to the distance a site license can serve?

How far away is one able to use a VPN to connect into a server and be within our licensing agreements?

Solution

It is acceptable to access a site license through VPN, as long as the person that is accessing the license remotely is within a 5-mile radius of the licensed site; see the full Xilinx License Agreement for more information: http://www.xilinx.com/ipcenter/doc/xilinx_click_core_site_license.pdf

Typically, site licenses only apply to LogiCORE IP features.
