network licensing for Maya 2014 on OSX 10.9.1

Hi there,

I would really appreciate a little step by step help with a network license installation of Maya2014 on my Macbook Pro running OSX 10.9.1 Mavericks.



I installed


successfully, then updated with



I set the server name as blah-blah.local


? Is this correct or should it be blah-blah.home?


I installed the Network License Manager server with ipv6 support 



? Does that need an install of the regular ipv4 Network License Manager to work?



Now, I can't install the ipv4 version after the ipv6 one - as the installer says there is already a more recent version installed.


My first question is:

? Do I need the ipv6 version at all?


And my second is:

? How do I un-install all the bits of the ipv6 version so that I can get the regular ipv4 version to install properly?


My last questions are:

? Which folders do I put the the .lic license files into for a Mac OSX installation?

? How do I start the Network License Server?


? Will the NLM server start up automatically each time when the machine is restarted?


Many thanks in advance for all help,
