I have a trial version of Jazz team server 6.0.2 with RM, QM and CCM
I want to access this server from anywhere so I want to make this server a floating license server.

How can I do that ? and how can I get trial floating licenses ?
Is there another way to access this server from another machine just using its discovery url ?

It appears that you just put two separate things together due to misunderstanding. Have a look into the document to understand the difference between an authorized license and a floating license.

The trial version of CLM comes with 10 trial licenses, which should be enough for a usual trial project. If you have more than 10 users participating in the trial project, you should contact IBM Sales to organize getting some more licenses.

To access the server from another machine, which is a completely separate topic, and has nothing to do with licenses. It depends on how you install the product and configure the public URI. Make sure that you do not use "localhost", "" or even any IP addresses in the public URI. Note that you can access the CLM system without a license, but just can't carry out certain operations.

I've set the public uri of the Jazz team server as follows ""

And it is installed on a remote machine elsewhere not in my current location.
I've tried to access this uri from my machine and the browser responded with "Server not found"

So what do you think is the problem here ?

The problem is that you need to talk to your network IT department to make sure that the server is reachable from your location and has a DNS entry at a DNS that you are connected to.

Ok I'll do that. Thank you for the help.
