Unable to access license server remotely via Microsoft Direct Access

Unable to access license server remotely via Microsoft Direct Access

Hello,

 

 

Since we were using Palo Alto VPN service and windows for connecting to company's servers when  working outside the company and it was working ok

 

Now we started using Windows with Direct Access to remotely connect to the company server. Now the files on the server can be seen normally, but the Creo cannot connect to the license. The output is that Creo does not start.

 

When contacting support in our country, they said, that Direct Access is working on IPV6 protocol, which is not supported in current version of Creo 2.0 M120.

 

Please fix this!!!!

Hi,

do you have found any solution?

Re: Unable to access license server remotely via Microsoft Direct Access

We are also working with Direct Access and one of my IT-colleagues created a powershell script to fix the problem. The scrip runs on your local machine and creates a portmapping service in the background and changes dynamically the hosts-file. The license requests are then going through the newly created service (basically it's a man-in-the-middle-service). The service gets the license-request on IPv4 and maps it to IPv6 en sends it to the license-server. For us it's working very well and I got permission to share the script when needed., but I can't add files to the comment??

Hello, Posting a 1100 line script is IMO not a good idea. Please send me a private message with your email address, so I can send it to you.
