Struggling to get License Manager 2011 to work

A first post from a very frustrated network manager.


I have been tasked with deploying Solidworks 2011 educational edition on a number of computers at school. SO far so good, I have worked out how to deploy these using the SW administrative image. The problem I am having now is with the LM on my server, and the firewall. I have configured the license manager to use the default port 25734 on my Windows 2008 R2 server, and opened up this port on the firewall, but the license manager on clients is still saying they cannot connect to the server. I know it's a firewall issue as I have disabled the firewall on the server and the license manager connects fine.


Are there any other ports I am missing? I have tried reactivating the license and made sure the box that specifies whether the server is behind a firewall has been ticked.


Any help or advice would be really appreciated.
