Quartus II Web Edition

Dear Comp.Arch.Fpga

I was just trying to get a license key for Quartus II Web Edition. It tells me that I need to provide a NIC to get the license key:

  • >Network Interface Card Number:*Your NIC number is a 12-digit hexadecimal number >that identifying the Windows workstation that serves the Quartus II Web Edition license. >You can find the NIC number for your network card by typing ipconfig /all at a command >prompt. Your NIC number is the number on the physical address line, minus the dashes, >for example, 00C04FA392EF

Does this mean that I should install an ethernet card? Also I don't understand "Windows workstation that serves the Quartus II Web Edition license". Does this mean I need a network of several machines to use Quartus II?

Your help is appreciated,

You do not need a network. However you do need to install Ethernet card, to get the NIC number. The NIC number is used to generate the license for your computer.

When I do work offsite I take a small 5 port switch with me. Plugging my PC's network cable into the switch causes the NIC to be active and available for licensing software.

No, it does not. Not really. You have to change/add a registry key :

HKLM\System\ControlSet001\Services\Tcpip\parameters\ new DWORD : DisableDHCPMediaSense assign =1
