I'm really surprised, how some people do not understand how this whole thing works.
The Eplan people make money from the legitimate licenses that they sell. They are expensive, yes, but the software is masterclass in his area.
Nowadays all systems are internet connected, so they moved their license system to a network one, in which, you can get te best of the software due to its network tools.
Now, thanks to chaos (huge work man, btw) it is possible to use (again) the software but in an offline basis with very few network tools available.
Sure you can connect to internet, but they can detect you (as chaos stated, the are many processes running in background, and more than one can check online with servers) immediately having your IP, Mac address, host name, hardware fingerprint of your computer, (they will defend their interests) and possibly claiming you any fine for using their software without license. Likewise other companies like Aut* d*sk or D*ass*ult.
So think a little bit, all network functions, may not work without a legit license.
And that includes Data Portal, because even with a legit license, if you don't pay the annual maintenance fee, you have no access to Data Portal, which is located in their servers.
So please, think about it before asking how to access to data Portal or any other network feature.

Chaos I want to thank you that worked straight away, thank you.
I have a few general security questions.
Can Eplan find out somehow that I have worked with a cracked version if I continue to send the Eplan files?
Does anyone know by chance whether Eplan does anything to detect cracked licenses when I send the Eplan P8 files?
I only need the version because I want to work from home. We have an original license at work.
As far as i know they check the serial. So you should enter the serial of your office-licence in the keygen and (*sorry @chaos363) replace the serial: chaos363 in the keygen with it
And yes, in every page of an Eplan project is stored the serial number of the dongle, (they do this from the very beginning, in the page tree, right click on a page, properties, scroll down, you will see the dongle, and you can't change it). And maybe there are other ways to mark the serial number of the dongle not so "visible". Therefore, when you handover a zw1 file to someone, at least the serial number of the dongle is stored in every page.
