Re: FLEXnet License Administrator - getting clients to see server

The ADSFLEX_LICENSE_FILE overrides the LICPATH.LIC.  You only need to put @SERVERNAME (or in yoru case @wbwiseint) as the value assuming the connection to DNS uses IPv4.  Changing the LICPATH.LIC MAC entry does nothing because it is only used to point to the hostname.  Thus 000000000000 is default and is irrelevant. 

 

Make sure that you can PING your NLM server.  Make sure it is IPv4.  Make sure that you can test the connection on both 2080 *and* 27000 with the IE links.  You may need to make exceptions for the four NLM .exe files as well as ports 2080 and 27000. 

 

http://wbwiseint:2080

http://wbwiseint:27000

 

Also make sure that the NLM is actually running and that the status enquiry shows that licenses for your product are available.  You are welcomed to post your status results here.

What I know: 1. I can ping wbwiseint. 2. IPv6 is enabled. 3. I get the correct message when I type http://wbwiseint:2080 into Internet Explorer. 4. I do not get the correct message for 27000. 5. The service lmadmin is running. 6. I can open FLEXnet License Administrator, and it shows adskflex as an option, and shows 3 licenses available. 7. The system information for FLEXnet shows the License Server Manager Port in Use to be 7788, not 27000. 8. This is because there are two applications (Autocad, Synergee) using FLEXnet License Administrator, and the other application specifically mentions 7788. Synergee uses a vendor port of 7789. So there seem to be at least 3 things different. I'm running IPv6, I don't get the message for 27000, and FLEXnet is probably using port 7788 anyway. Does that mean I need a license file that specifically mentions 7788?

Not necessarily.  You should be able to add 27000 to the end of the first line of your license file then save and reread it.  That should force the master daemon to use 27000 at least for the ADSKFLEX vendor daemon connection.  You might give that a try and verify the status to see that it is working as expected.  I think once you get this part resolved, you'll be good to go.

 

As for the IPv6, you can bypass this by adding the IPv4 number and hostname of the NLM server to the HOSTS file on the workstation.  That's all in my IPv6 fix link I posted previously (or in my sig line.)

I have Autcad 2013 network version up and running! What I needed to do was add the port 7788 to the end of the first line. This was done because the license manager is being shared between two applications (Autcad and Synergee), and Synergee had put a specific port in for the master daemon (7788) instead of the generic 27000. Thank you for all your help. You gave me the information I needed!

That should work so long as you're using the same LMGRD file.  Although it is best for each master daemon connection to use a different port for each service connection.  In any case, I am glad you are up and running.
