Authentication

As soon as the driver begins to run it will attempt to authenticate with neat’s server – If authentication fails and/or a license has not been purchased (Plus processed – neat’s admin needs to confirm the order) the system will become unresponsive to commands after 24 Hours.

Anytime the host is restarted it will need to authenticate with neat’s server within 24 hours otherwise commands will become unresponsive.

The driver will try to call the neat server every 5 minutes to check for an available update.
