Linux

The installation is only possible with a valid subscription. However, an existing backup can be used to restore the software even without subscription. See Change of Platform

A regular backup is recommended to ensure that your system is as current as possible in case of a defect. Even more, an active subscription is required to download IP-Symcon anew in case of a complete loss of data.
