Frequently Asked Questions

Does every user have to install an application on their PC?

No, i-net CoWork only needs to be installed on a server. Using the latest browser, any user can join without additional installation.
Also: there is no user limitation.

Why is there no button for calls in channels?

The calls (voice, video, screen sharing), only work if the server is accessed through a valid HTTPS connection. Furthermore, make sure that the plugin “CoWork Calls” is installed and activated in the Store.

Are there any restrictions on the number of participants in a video conference?

Currently there is no set limit in i-net CoWork. A limit results from the available bandwidth of the individual participants. The transmission of video and audio is done between the individual browsers, which exchange data with each other via an on-the-fly mesh network, without an additional central server.

Can I test i-net CoWork extensively before purchasing a license?

Yes! During the initial setup after installing i-net CoWork, a trial license is created by our license server. This has a validity of 90 days and provides enough time to extensively test all functions, even in larger organizations.

Do I need another license if I have already licensed another i-net software product?

If you have another i-net software product with a valid license, you can install the text chat feature of i-net CoWork from the Store and use it at no additional cost. Only additional features, such as voice and video chat, require an additional i-net CoWork feature license.

Who can I contact if I have a problem with installation, setup, or other questions about i-net CoWork?

Our professional support staff is available to help with any questions or issues related to the product. Feedback is also welcome and helps us to continue to develop i-net CoWork. Simply write to us at cowork@inetsoftware.de with your concerns.

How long will I get support?

General support, including explanations and support for updates, is provided for a maximum of 5 years. Our policies for supporting released versions is detailed here.
