Licensing related query for wowza


I have just downloaded wowza streaming server demo from the website and got the license through email. Is it required an active internet connection in server for this demo license to work. Generally we don’t have internet connection in our servers. In that case will it work offline.

Thanks in advance.


Hello there and welcome to the Wowza support forum.

Wowza itself can communicate and stream on a private LAN. The issue you will have is if you have a Wowza instance that requires license verification then it will need to contact the Wowza license servers to verify your instance. I’d suggest contacting Sales at with your requirements as I’m sure they will be able to assist you.
