How to acquire license from client machine
Make sure that this following environment variable is set on client machine to acquire the floating license from the license server.
Variable : VE3D_LICENSE_FILE Value : @hostname_of_license_server Example : If the hostname_of_license_Server is ‘vcollab_lic_server’, then the value should be as below Value : @vcollab_lic_server
If port number is specified in the SERVER line of license file for License Manager Daemon (lmgrd,) as below
SERVER vcollab_lic_server 0050568A73A5 2701
That specific port number should be used in VE3D_LICENSE_FILE variable on client machine as below
Value : 2701@vcollab_lic_server
Make sure that this port number is not used by any other application.
If port number is not specified in the license file, it’s not required to specify port number in VE3D_LICENSE_FILE variable on client machine
The default port number used by FLEXlm is between 27000 – 27009, if no port is specified in the license file
