Have you tried increasing the value of the FLEXLM_TIMEOUT variable Travis mentioned above, to something like 3000000?
Right. Remote locations are subject to network latency that can be overcome by the FLEXLM_TIMEOUT. Typically (one-million) is enough of a setting. Each million equates to one extra second of wait time. The other thing remote locations are subject to is firewalls blocking ports 2080 and 27000. Pint the server to verify connectivity first via IPv4, then use Internet Explorer to test the ports:
You should get some jargon. If not, then your ports are blocked.
I tried the the FLEXLM_TIMEOUT at 3000000.
"Pint the server to verify connectivity first via IPv4" What do you mean by this?
2080 and 27000 are open in the router but I dont see anything on the webpage.
Ping. Sorry, typo. If Internet Explorer does not show a jaron page, then your ports are not open.
What is your servername?
If you don't see this in Internet Explorer (don't use any other browser) then your ports are not coming thru:
If you get a 'Page cannot be displayed' error, then it will not work.
Been a while since I posted but the issue remains.
I did find that the server is just a regular PC acting as a server at the same location as the PC that can't run it. So I reinstalled AutoCad and pointed it to the new server but still no go.
The server name is Server-PC. If I open IE with those two ports I get nothing.
So even in an office those ports should open?
