English term or phrase:remote connection
the software may not be accessed over a network or other remote connection
Explanation: The latter term is used rather frequently now. E. g. in Windows 2000, "remote" actually remains Remote (in composition with another word, this word follows directly without a colon according to the new German orthography).

Explanation: If the software referenced in your text runs under Windows, I would suggest using Remoteverbindung (cf. Microsoft's German Win2000 glossary: "A Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server provides a central authentication database for multiple remote access servers and collects accounting information about remote connections.,,Ein RADIUS-Server bietet eine zentrale Authentifizierungsdatenbank für mehrere RAS-Server und sammelt die Kontoführungsinformationen von Remoteverbindungen.")
