Rush Simonson:

What other options are you opining about? I do not know of another software product that offers close to what Logos offers.  This is a suggestion and comments forum in which the business asks its valued customers for feedback and suggestions so our comments are appropriate and constructive.  I have not heard any feedback from Logos at this point.  Are you privy to their opinion in this matter? Please share. I am very anxious with endless middle class bourgeoisie fears and desire an answer.

Someone from Logos commented a few weeks ago on this subject: https://community.logos.com/forums/p/198041/1147703.aspx#1147703

Thank you very much for the link, it gave me some good information.  My biggest question is how often my device must check in with FL to validate its license?  This is really to cruz of the matter.  I have Logos on over 6 computers/devices that I use regularly so hardware failure is not the issue.  My son is a high level IT sysop and he distills it down to requirement for a licensing server access.

Sorry, you are right, politics has never affected Christianity or restricted access to its materials.  My bad.

Goal!

It's my understanding that the license only needs to be validated once when it is installed.  After that, Logos could run indefinitely offline.

I have gone for 4-6 weeks with Logos functioning offline on my laptop before I connect it again and have never had any problems.

Simple suggestion-if it concerns you about losing your investment (for whatever endless hypothetical situation) then don't invest in the instrument.  

Safe to say, if you're a regular here, you've already made an investment.

This agrees with my experience. I've been running Logos in a PC virtual machine that is usually offline for the best part of 10 years without issue - only going online from time-to-time to get updates. In the early days (Logos 4), it would throw up a dialogue box asking for credentials on startup, but it had a work offline button that allowed me to continue without the Internet. On recent releases, I haven't seen that box for a long time, so maybe they've re-coded it to automatically work offline if there is no Internet. Either way, it works.

Does anyone know what services require an Internet connection? I believe the atlas requires one.

Searching for Net in the Logos help file gives a good indication:

I don't know if this information is completely current though.

Net search in Help was helpful for updating Logos Wiki:
