Greetings, I'm trying to setup the Autodesk Network License Manager for our UX team. I followed the installation instructions and everything seems to be running just fine. Process adskflex is listening on port 2080 and lmgrd is listening on 27000:
[root@ga-autodesknlm ~]# netstat -tanp Active Internet connections (servers and established) Proto Recv-Q Send-Q Local Address Foreign Address State PID/Program name tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:2080 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 10447/adskflex tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:27000 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 10444/lmgrd tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:36931 127.0.0.1:58396 ESTABLISHED 10447/adskflex tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:58396 127.0.0.1:36931 ESTABLISHED 10447/adskflex tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:27000 127.0.0.1:32963 ESTABLISHED 10444/lmgrd tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:32963 127.0.0.1:27000 ESTABLISHED 10447/adskflex
Here's the output of the log during startup:

And finally on the client machine (which has 3ds Max preinstalled - license server was running locally/license file) when putting in the hostname to connect, it returns the following:
A tcpdump from the server shows that all the client is doing is sending a ping request, receiving a response of the request and then throwing the above error:
[root@ga-autodesknlm ~]# tcpdump -nn -i any host 192.168.3.229 tcpdump: WARNING: Promiscuous mode not supported on the "any" device tcpdump: verbose output suppressed, use -v or -vv for full protocol decode listening on any, link-type LINUX_SLL (Linux cooked), capture size 96 bytes 13:33:18.380477 IP 192.168.3.229 > 192.168.226.64: ICMP echo request, id 1, seq 21, length 40 13:33:18.380563 IP 192.168.226.64 > 192.168.3.229: ICMP echo reply, id 1, seq 21, length 40
The two network segments are wide open and nothing is blocking it. Ran a wireshark on the client machine and it as well only showed the ping request and response.
Server is running on CentOS 5.9 if that matters.
Solved! Go to Solution.
If client (3DS Max) is on WIndows and Server is linux, we always use the IP address of the LINUX server. I also noticed that the servername in log file is 'domain' but input file is 'something' else.
I am going to use a Windows playbook, check out step 6 in this blog post:
Also, check the firewall settings on Windows to linux by checking out step 4 within above post. If everything is done correctly, that finder window to look for the license server shouldn't even come up.
