New NX user, installed 9.0.3 and 10.0 on workstation. Everything functions as expected with no problem. License is configured for borrowing option. Install of NX complete on laptop and laptop is attached by ethernet to the same network domain. Using the licensing Tools where borrow would be accomplished I have tried to locate the server in Environment Settings. I have not found documentation showing exact syntax for the address when the server is not running on the client machine.
On server/workstation license server = 28000@username works fine
On laptop license server I have tried ip style xxx.xx.x.xxx:28000@username
and more, not so much as a hint that a connection is attempted. Firewall does not even show attempt to access port 28000 on the workstation. I have also modified the environment variable along with the licensing tool field.
Thanks, I assume it is a matter of syntax but a perhaps if a known map of ports that need to be open were available it would help.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Why don't you use 28000@license_server combination?
All Flexlms license servers should work with port@host combination. At least so far I've seen since early 90's...
I have tried
I get the -96 license server is down or not responding
Thank you for the input, I have used FlexLM in the past and that seemed to right to me as well. But it always worked without requiring me to really learn how to configure everything.
