I've never used floating license since Wildfire.
My main computer (T012) have a floating license server that is UP (Creo2).
I'm trying to install Creo parametric 2 on my laptop, using this license.
At the beginning of install, I've filled in licence identification (summary) : 7788@T012.
Then, setup application is searching and tell me "inaccessible" .
Computer t012 is accessible from notebook explorer.
Wired network simply pass thru an internet box but just used as a simple switch.
Don't know what to do.
What can I try, test, verify...
I guess that Firewall is up and running on T012 machine. Turn it of temporarily and test installing CR2 on laptop.
Thank you Martin, that's right.
However 2 more questions...
Is there any document, somewhere, that explain how to setup Firewall for PTC 7788 port ?
Does someone knows why I don't see my posts in community mailings ?
I'm waiting a little bit to note Martin's answer as resolved, but it is, as this new message may not be reed.
you have to define firewall rule, which allows incoming communication.
1.] lmadmin.exe and ptc_d.exe processes are running (use Task manager to see running processes for all users on T012)
You can define firewall rule to allow incoming communication for lmadmin.exe and ptc_d.exe
You can modify server.xml file (change port="0" to port="7789") and define firewall rule to allow incoming communication for 7788, 7789 TCP ports.
2.] lmgrd.exe and ptc_d.exe processes are running
You can define firewall rule to allow incoming communication for lmgrd.exe and ptc_d.exe
You can modify license.dat file (add port=7789 at the end of DAEMON line) and define firewall rule to allow incoming communication for 7788, 7789 TCP ports.
Note: I do not any idea, why you can't see your posts.
