Step 11: On the Start/Stop/Reread tab, click Start Server. Allow approximately 30 seconds and then verify that the sedemon.exe and lmgrd.exe processes are running on the server. If these two processes are running, the configuration has been successful. On a computer that is running the Windows XP or 2000 Professional operating system, use the Task Manager to display the processes that are running.
Step 12: Install Solid Edge on each client machine that will be running Solid Edge. Copy the SELicense.dat file from the server to each client. Place it in the ~\Solid Edge\Program directory. Floating licenses are not created through the License Wizard process.
Note: If you have a problem reading the license file information on the Flexlm server it may be related to a Windows firewall issue. Windows XP SP2 installs additional firewall protection to a user's machine. One of the things that this firewall will do is prevent clients from accessing a machine that has XP SP2 installed, including a license server. To correct this on the license server, select Start->Control Panel and double click on "Windows Firewall". When the Windows Firewall dialog comes up, select the "Exceptions" tab. This is where you will add the programs or services that you do not want to be blocked from external use. In this case, you need to select the Add Program... button. Browse to the location you have installed flexlm and select the lmgrd.exe program, then do the same thing for the sedemon.exe. With these two programs added to the exception list, your clients will again be able to access your license server. In some situations, you may have to reboot your server.
