So I have just installed my copy of Solid Works and it asked for my serial number. The serial number was ok and proceded with the installation until
the last step before installing the software. Its asking about a portnumber@server...?? any ideas
Brian, try 25734@servername the server name is where your license key was installed. If it was done using defaults.
25734 is the default port (I believe)
The problem is that I never got a license key the only thing that I got was the serial number.
Any ideas where to get it. Once I get the license key what do I need to do to sucessfully install it on my server machine.
Did you tried activating the license
You request the license on the customer portal under "My Support, My Products" there is a get license button. Once you have this, you can install the license manger on the server.
Just put in the DVD and (If I remember) you go to addtional products. It's been awhile since I installed it.
In SolidWorks 2010 you no longer need a license key. You activate the SNL server over the internet.
See Deepak's link for the current instruction on how to activate the SW2010 SNL server.
We are "special" cause we use a MAC address so SolidWorks sends us a license.
Rob, I do not understand why a MAC address makes you special. We no longer use a hard lock as well. Just install the SNL Server and activate with SW. Cheers, Anna
I'm not sure either. But when we went to a SNL, we couldn't use the "request a license" on the portal.
Maybe that has changed.
Port number is usually 25734@server name or IP address. And server is the machine on which you have installed the License Manager and that contains the license file.
Did you load the license manager on your server? I'm assuming you have a SNL..?
I would also suggest posting this in the admin/install section of the forums. You will get more hits.
I have figured out the issue... I run the Linux implementation of FlexLM. I have multiple packages needing licensing services. I was looking for the license files for the Linux implementation.
FlexLM was a check-off item in implementing SolidWorks and the answer is "Yes". However only the windows version... Which is installed from the SolidWorks administration installation.
I am looking to see if I can get the SolidWorks License tools to run under wine or vmware player. If anyone has experience with trying this I would be interested in hearing from you.
Thanks for all your responces.
Have you been successfull in getting flexlm to run on a linux machine for solidworks?
