I have MATLAB installed on my laptop which should connect to a certain host that stores license information. I used to be able to use MATLAB anywhere that I had an internet connection. Recently, I have noted that MATLAB can only access the license server only from local network and not outside.

Is it possible to somehow ask MATLAB to connect to the license server via ssh tunneling through my computer at work? I have tried forwarding my localhost to a remote port on my work computer and forward that remote port to the server license but that does not seem to work. Any ideas?

If your institution limit's the server access to local hosts, you may try to ask them if they can provide you with a "VPN access".
