Default Can I use VPN?

When traveling I use VPN.

As you most likely know a VPN changes my IP address frequently. Will that eat up my activations?

Only a few DCS Modules still uses the old StarForce activation system .. if I recall correctly, they are the A-10C, the BS2 and FC3.

Even so, the activations are triggered by changes on your hardware: Mainboard, network card, hard drive, memory amount. Also, reinstalling windows requires an activation. So ... the IP address does not trigger activations.
