In our support desk we get plenty of calls in relation to network license configuration, and how we set it up.

So I thought I would blog about it to explain a few steps.

There are 3 requirements

License server ( a Server Or PC that is joined to the Network)

Autodesk Network License Manager (LMTOOLS)

License file (This can obtained from Autodesk on line)

On the license server we Install the Autodesk Network License Manager

you can install the License Manger from your Autodesk Media Kit (Install Tools and Utilities)

Once we have installed the License Manger it is then time to Configure our license file.

To obtain your license file please click Here

To configure the Autodesk license Manger please click Here

The  links above very detailed and goes through step by step how both obtain, configure the license and License Manger.

They are a few tests you should review before configuring your license manager.

  • Ensure that client PCs can see (ping) the license server on the Network
  • Firewalls are not preventing  are not blocking the license ports.
  • The license 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 don’t hesitate to contact the Support Team
