I'm trying to install and configure the Flexera licensing server to deliver floating Print Composer licenses. (We used fixed licenses for Editor.) I am working with support. But we seem to be going around in circles a bit. Has anyone had to work through firewall and McAfee or other safety-ware issues?
From what we can tell, the server is installed properly and all of the necessary firewall rules server-side, were created by the install.
The client is not able, however, to reach the server (no log entries ever acknowledge requests/denials).
I have created Inbound and Outbound Firewall rules that permit TCP to/from 7788 in Domain and Private (but not Public) matching the entries created on the server.
I can telnet from my laptop to the server port 7788. I can't do anything useful, of course, but the connection appears to be accepted (it does not timeout as it does if I use port 7789).
I have set PTC_D_LICENSE_FILE to ..licensepath/editorlicensefile.txt;7788@hostname and I have also tried ..licensepath/editorlicensefile.txt;firstname.lastname@example.org.
But Editor doesn't successfully retrieve a license.
SERVER __HOSTNAME__ PTC_HOSTID=xxxxxxxxxxxx 7788 DAEMON ptc_d __PTCD_PATH__
Are you saying you added a third line?

I believe __HOSTNAME__ and __PTCD_PATH__ is PTC 'shorthand' for fill in your site's hostname and daemon path respectively...

Der. I was looking at the wrong file. You're right, of course. I actually have:
SERVER myhostname PTC_HOSTID=xxxxxxxxxxxx 7788 DAEMON ptc_d "e:\flexnet\ptc_d.exe" "e:\flexnet\ptc.opt"
When I start the server, log entries show ptc_d being assigned a random high port (in the 60000 range). But everything appears right on the server. lmtools reports all is well. If I add 7788 it fails. If I add 7789 nine it again appears to succeed.
Now my second line reads: DAEMON ptc_d "e:\flexnet\ptc_d.exe" "e:\flexnet\ptc.opt" 7789
And I had to add firewall rules for 7789 but I left PTC_D_LICENSE_FILE=7788 and it worked! Editor got a license!
Amazing. You guys, I mean. Thanks!
