I am workning with an installation of Autodesk Simulation 2012, operating with a network license.  The network license seems to be accessable from any machine EXCEPT for the machine that is acting as the network license server.  Is there any way to run Simulation from the same machine that is acting as the license server?  I was able to get earlier versions to work on the same machine as the licesne.

This is most likely due to the fact that the local NLM machine is Windows Vista or Windows 7 and the issue is related to IPv6. 


For more information about Network License Manager connectivity issues and IPv6, please see my discussion post here:
