Shouldn't really matter who is behind what. So long as there is connectivity, it could be a NAT, Router, VPN, or a can and string. If you can PING the NLM and have access to ports 2080 and 27000, then you should be able to get a license. Most often the problem is either Firewall or timeout.
For some reaseon I have trouble to grasp, my message is displayed without content. Here is it again.
It is nice to know it should be working, but it would be even nicer to have this actually working.
We know that ping, TCP 2080 and TCP 27000 connectivity is fine. However, the client still cannot get a licence, it just loops on the dialogs about selecting a licence server/file. ADSKFLEX_PATH did not help.
Double check the client and make sure that the system environment variables are set correctly for FLEXLM_TIMEOUT and for ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE
Make sure @SERVERNAME is the hostname of your NLM server. These two variables solve the license finder box almost 99% of the time based on your description.
Just to make sure: once the variable are set, I should not see the three dialogs of licence finder anymore, right? If I still have them, it means the variable is not set or is not taken into account?
If correctly set on the client, your problem should be resolved if connectivity is indeed working.
That's the hope!
