License problems with second IP

Recently I have installed Adlm on a NT4 Server. We have installed a modem
with an automatic dial up to our provider. During this connection the server
gets a second IP address and the ADLM isn't able to get the license any
more. Do you have any idea to solve this problem ? We can't move the modem
nor the License-Manager.
Thanks Pius

If you can't move the modem or the adlm then you have problems. ADLM doesn't support a
machine that has more than 1 network card, no matter what kind of card it is (as far as NT
networking is concerned a modem is a nic). You might get lucky and try booting the
machine a couple of times to see if it will magically work and tcp/ip binds to the
ethernet card first but it's a toss up. Next time you boot the server it could come up in
a different way and the adlm will no longer work.

Just curious, why can't you move the adlm? I recommend to almost everyone that for the
elan version of the adlm you get a PI class machine, install ntw sp6 (6, 5, 4 whatever
you're comfortable with, but make sure that it's above 3) and the adlm. Set the machine
in the corner and shoot anyone who touches it. This way you are actually getting some use
out of one of those old machines that no one wants to use (I indicated a PI machine and
autodesk says a pentium class machine is required, but it will run on a 486-80, I've tried
it.).

ADLM with multiple nics simply isn't supported. You might be able to get it to work, but
you're on your own.
Sorry:-(

Thanks for writing back, but I can't face it. Is it really possible that
Autodesk doesn't support multiple IP addresses in there current version
called Internet-version ! Are they really able to write a CAD program ? But
anyway. Do you know any other possibilities for using Autocad on multiple
machines ? Are Server-Hardwaredongles supported ? Thanks Pius

Do you have an internet-address (anywhere in the knowledge base ?) where
it's written that a second IP address isn't supported ?

For documentation see http://support01.autodesk.com/knowledgebase/html/104603.htm
As far as I know (US version) there are no hardware locks available for autocad. I've
never worked with the international version so I don't know the details of international
licensing.

sorry

Just to add one more point to Jason's correct advice. If two logical NICs
are in an AdLM server, it is possible for AdLM to fail during operation even
if it works when the system is powered on.
