Hello,

 

I have a 10-seat license and just got it verified with http://www.licenseparser.com.

 

The FlexLM runs as a service on a Win7 64 machine.

The clients are Win7 64 machines.

 

If I click Server Status it returns me this:

And so on...

There I can only see one error. But accorting to http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Installation-Licensing/FLEXnet-Licensing-error-125-147/td-p/2834003 it can be ignored.

 

Browsing to http://XXXXX:27000 gives me Wê-60Wê-60Wê-60Wê-60Wê-60

 

When I start ACAD it returns

 

A valid license could not be obtained by the network license manager.

Error [-15.570.0]

All these solutions from http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Installation-Licensing/AutoCAD-2012-License-Error-15-570-0/m-p/3075606... did not work. 

 

FLEXnet is the most frustrating software ever!

 

Any tricks/hints I should know?

 

TIA

Darren is right, it has to be IPv4 and the correct one at that. 

 

Also, note that Windows 7 has a concurrent connection limitation as well.  Depending on your version, you have a limitation of up to 20 concurrent sessions.  Server does not have this limitation. 

 

For more information about Network License Manager connectivity issues and IPv6, please see my discussion post here:

You did http://XXXXX:27000  but did you also do http://XXXXX:2080 ?  It might also be worth testing ports 27001 - 27009.  Basically the worstation needs to be able to communicate with the licence server through ports 2080 and 27000 - 27009.

 

I usually recommend doing a telnet to the server through those ports, however you would need to enable the telnet client on the workstation.

 

As has already been suggested is the IPV4/IPV issue

On the server if start the dos command prompt and do an ipconfig /all and see if you can find any lrefernce to IPV6 then you should either disable it

OR

install the IPV6 version of LMTools
