ADLM and TCP-IP

109 Views, 5 Replies

I need to change the TCP-IP address of my NT-Server where ADLM is installed.

I believe that this will change my server code, which means I will need a
new Authorisation code. Is this correct.

Since it takes Autodesk at least 3 or 4 working days to issue new codes, at
least here in Australia, I am going to have a problem.
Is there a way to reactivate the demo mode while waiting for the new code?

Or

Do I need to:

- Change the tcp/ip address on the ADLM machine.
- Run AdLM Admin to generate a server code based on the new configuration.
- Send that to Autodesk.
- Change the tcp/ip address back to the old one. So we can work.
- Wait for the new server code to arrive before changing the tcp/ip address
again.

The server where ADLM is installed, also runs DHCP.
All my workstation running NT Workstation, have an IP address assigned by
the server.

Yes it will change the server code and you will need a new auth code. I
have no idea what the procedure is in Australia but in the US they also
provide you with a phone number that you can call to get Auth codes, they'll
give you the number while you're on the phone with them.

I think that the phone # was in our getting started guide, but I can't find
that guide right now?

Just a question. Why do you need to change the IP address of the AdLM
server?

Also, once you change you IP address I don't know if you can change it back
to get the same server code. Maybe Jerry can answer this question. What
affects the server code? Is it the IP address, the MAC address of the NIC,
the date and time of installation, the hard drive?

Hi All,

If all you do is change one thing and change it back exactly the same, you
should get the same server code back. There is also a possibility that the
server code will not change when an IP address is changed. The actual
parameters AdLM will bind to varies from system to system.

Hi Kevin,

The idiot who installed our server 3 years ago gave it the following IP
address: 100.100.100.1

The server is not connected to the Internet but other computers on the
network need to be and if I give these computers a legal address to connect
the Internet, then they are outside the scope to connect our LAN.

I am using DHCP on the server but I need a computer with a static IP address
to run Wingate.

I am no TCP/IP guru and I have been told that I need to change the server to
192.168.0.0 or another legal address before I can set a computer with
Wingate and a static address of 192.168.0.xxx

If anyone has another solution I would be glad to hear it.

First. You can't use 192.168.0.0 as an IP address this is an illegal
address for the default subnet mask of a class "B" address 255.255.0.0
(unless of course your subnet mask is different). Secondly, it does not
matter what your internal addressing scheme is, the only thing that matters
is that the NIC card (or whatever it is) that is your connection to the
internet needs to be assigned the address that your ISP gives you.

I don't have any experience with Wingate, but if it is a proxy program then
you would configure it to go out to the internet via the IP address that
you ISP assigned to you and then configure all of your clients to connect
to the internet via the IP address of the proxy server. Here is the beauty
of a proxy server, you only have one IP address for all of your clients so
you don't have to pay for a legal IP address for all of your clients.

Hope this helps. :smileyhappy:
