The release of ZWCAD Network License program outside the internal network .

Network license server software is based on a system of flexlm . License server can be any computer with access to the internal network . The problem may be to provide a license outside the internal network . This article is dedicated to just discuss how to make the network license program outside the internal network .

First a little theory. Flexlm uses 2 ports for network licensing .

The first is in the range from 27000 to 27009 - let's call it a " port of call " . By default it is set to 27000 , but if your computer is running other server -based license flexlm collision can occur . You must then manually switch port number callsign for ZWCAD .

This can be done as follows. Select Start == > Programs ==> ZWCAD Network License Manager ==> LMTools and go to the tab Config Services.
Find the file name and path to it called " Path to license file " - as in the figure below. In our case it will be
C: \ Program Files \ ZWLMS Col. \ counted.lic



Open the file counted.lic , using an ordinary text editor. Here are the default contents :

This_host ANY SERVER

VENDOR zwflex OPTIONS = zwflex.opt

USE_SERVER

Without going into details , port number, call sign , can we move it simply by adding at the end of the first line after a space , eg

This_host ANY SERVER 27005


Call now port is set to port 27005 .

After the ZWCAD do not have anything to do . The program will check the ports from 27000 to 27009 . If the server responds flexlm ZWCAD program on a range of ports of call , it sends it in response to a second port , let's call it " communication " . It is used to check for a license. The default communication port is allocated dynamically when the server starts flexlm license .

However, you can set the communication port permanently. With the availability of licenses outside the corporate network is often required. To set the port to permanently open the file counted.lic ( in the same way as above) and at the end of the second line we add a static port number , such as 723 (please remember to include a space before the port number ) .

VENDOR zwflex OPTIONS = zwflex.opt 723

Save the file counted.lic , in our case it will look like this

This_host ANY SERVER 27005

VENDOR zwflex OPTIONS = zwflex.opt 723

USE_SERVER

Restart the license server ( tab Start / Stop / Reread in LMTOOLS ) .
Click on the window LMTOOLS ( Config Services tab ) on the View Log .

Opens a window in which displays text similar to the following ( note the text that pogrubiłem ) :

( This line may vary slightly depending on the version of the server).


If the license server is restarted and both ports are set according to your needs you need to make some changes to the router. It is impossible to describe here , because virtually every router has a different way of configuration. In some port forwarding option is called " port forwarding" other " UPnP " .

However, please remember one principle. We map the ports with the same number . The port number on the outside and inside must be the same , for example, port 723 mapped to 723

In ZWCAD serve only the external IP address of the router. The router receives a request on port 27005 . Check our table redirects and forward the package to the license server on port 27005 . The server responds to the router on port 723, and the router will provide the answer to your computer with ZWCAD .
