Can I run Flexnet publisher on Cent OS 7?

Hi there.

 

Is there anyone who use Cent OS 7 as license server of Flexnet for Creo?
I know supported Linux distribution is Redhat according to PTC platform support information.
But I want to use existing Cent OS 7 machine as license server if it is possible.
I tried it. It seems that lmgrd and vendor daemon work normally, and lisence server check during Creo installation process on client Windows PC is also success. However when I launch Creo, license check error(-96) happen.
Should I do any works to resolve issue and is there anything for investigation?

Hi,

I think that you know that:

  • lmgrd uses port 7788 (by default)
  • ptc_d is assigned port number dynamically (by default)

If you want to assign fixed port to ptc_d, you have to modify DAEMON line in license file ... see below

DAEMON ptc_d YourInstallationPath\ptc_d.exe YourInstallationPath\ptc.opt port=portnumber

Hi,

I use Cent OS 7 (in virtual machine) as license server of Flexnet for Creo.

Note:

On Windows error(-96) is caused by Firewall blocking access to license manager on server.

Is firewall running in your CentOS ?

If YES, try turning it off and test.

Hi MartinHanak,

 

Thank you for your reply.

 

I could successfully run license server and launch Creo with license authentication thanks to your advice.
I found that I needed to open one more port for ptc_d.
