Default Does iLok Cloud work offline?

My iLok-cloud scenario is to work, away from my sleeping main computer, on a laptop (MIDI sessions) then, later, import the sessions into my main computer.

Reading all the documentation, this scenario is not clear.

Do I have to remove the license from my physical iLok to use the cloud license?

Can I do a quick wifi cloud authorization with the laptop and then work off-line?

Do I need a special (payed) cloud account to use iLok-cloud?

These questions do not need to be answered immediately.

No, you need a persistent internet connection.

No, but you need software versions that support it. 2018.1 is the first version of Pro Tools that support iLok Cloud.

See the iLok Cloud FAQ.

Thanks for the reply.

It seems like it will be easier to just bring my physical iLok along with my laptop.
