Configuration of Autodesk Network Licencing Manager
On our support desk we get plenty of calls in relation to network licence configuration, and how we set it up.
So i thought I would blog about it to explain a few steps.
There are 3 requirments
Licence server ( a Server Or PC that is joined to the Network)
Autodesk Network Licence Manager (LMTOOLS)
Licence file (This can obtained from Autodesk on line)
On the licence server we Install the Autodesk Network Licence Manager
you can install the Licnece Manger from your Autodesk Media Kit (Install Tools and Utilities)
Once we have installed the Licence Manger it is then time to Configure our licence file.
To obtain your licence file please click Here
To configure the Autodesk licence Manger please click Here
The links above very detailed and goes through step by step how both obtain,configure the licence and Licence Manger.
They are a few tests you should review before configuing your licence manager.
- Ensure that client PCs can see (ping) the licence server on the Network
- Firewalls are not preventing are not blocking the licence ports.
- The licence file itself has got the right MAC address and server Name.
I hope this helps but as always, if you have any questions on the above please dont hesitate to contact the Procad Support Team
