More ADT2 WIN 2k network problems

Hello again,
I thought I had my problem licked with the install of the dll update
for ACAD 2000 but I don't. Now when I invoke any of the ADT commands I
get the following errors:
"Unable to send License daemon message"
followed by:
"License check failed"

Before the dll update I could not even start ADT2 but it will now start
but when it initializes ADT I get the error above. Please help me
again.

Justin,

Are you setting ACADSERVER? If you are, check the case of the variable's
value as the setting is case sensitive. While AutoCAD may find the AdLM
server without an ACADSERVER variable set or set incorrectly, the ADT module
requires that this variable be set properly.

Didn't work, I did not have it set before but I have it set now. FYI, I am
using the TCP/IP version of the ADLM. Can an IP address be assigned to the
ACADSERVER Varible or does it have to be a machine name? I tried both but
no fix. What else should I try?

As Jerry has corrected me on before it should be set to the host name of the
machine running the adlm.

Jason is correct, you must set ACADSERVER to the hostname of the license
server. The hostname is displayed in the DNS tab of TCP/IP properties.
Generally speaking, the hostname will be lower case where the machine name
will be uppercase. Also, in order for all of this to work, you must be able
to ping the AdLM server by hostname from the workstation and ping the
workstation by name from the server. IP address is not good enough. Also
remember that on Win 95 and 98 you must set ACADSERVER in Autoexec.bat and
the workstation has to be rebooted.

I did this... the machine name and the hostname are the same on this machine.
And again this is a Windows 2000 machine! What else can I do. Is anyone else
having this problem or am I the only one?

Can't help you, but I can confirm that you aren't alone - I'm having the
same problem.

I know this isn't what you want to hear but build a NT4 box out of a 486,
install adlm and set it in the corner. The only time we connect a monitor
to ours is to install an NT service pack.

Not much help but it will work.

I am assumeing that the server has nothing to do with it, I have ACAD LT98
ADLM running on the same machine and it works fine. BTW the our ADLM machine
is Windows 98 based Pent 75. (it works great). This is a windows 2000
problem.

Jason:

I'm actually running that configuration: NT4 server hosting adlm, Win2k
workstation running ADT2, and I still can't get a license for the ADT2 part.
So I have to agree with Justin, it appears to be a Win2k problem (or a
problem with how Win2k talks to every other operating system).

Are you actually using this configuration successfully?
