Can't activate network maya 2011 licence - Windows 7

Hi,
 
I downloaded a 'previous version' of maya 2011 (i have bought 2013)
 
Autodesk sent me a license file on our request, unfortunately its still not working. 
 
I saved the license file in C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager\Licenses
 When I run Maya 2011 I see the FLEXnet licence finder window (attached).
 
I click next and browse to the license file that was sent but when I go forward I get these errors (attached):
 
I followed the steps in How to Configure your Network License Server but it doesn't make any difference. 
If I choose to specify the license server system and then enter the hostname of the machine, I get the 'Networking error' dialog box (attached).
 
Autodesk is answering emails at the speed of 1 a day. I really need 2011 running before tomorrow. it's been 3 days now. I can't believe that the seemingly most viable option is to download a hack of 2011 when i have paid for this!
 
help apperciated. so urgent
 
Thanks

-15 either means that your License Manager (NLM) isn't running or a firewall is blocking it (or the dreaded IPv6 incompatibility issue.)

 

I have many fixes listed for this in my signature line.
