I am having some problems setting up FlexLM on a windows server 2008 R2 64 bit machine. I believe the port used by flexLM does have access through the firewall,opened during FlexLM installation, but not sure how I can confirm this.
All the client computers are running 64 bit version of Windows 7.
Originally I followed the steps in the installation guide for installing flexLM on windows.
Additionally as we are using two floating licenses I followed the steps on the link below to combine into one license.
Next I followed the steps from the link below setting up on windows server 2008
However the client machines are not able to get access to the host machine.
The host machine is able to see its own license however I believe this is due to the setting within the environment variable.
I noticed when I searched that some of the earlier solutions indicated that I should use the 32 bit version of flexLM not the 64 bit version. But these posts were rather old April 2009 so I assumed that the 64 bit version should be ok now and I have installed the 64 version on the host.
Finally inwindows Services I noticed there are two services regarding FlexLM:
FLEXnet Licensing Services & FLEXnet Licensing Services 64
I was unsure why there are two but I started both of them but that does not seem to work.
