License Server and VLANS

We recently tried to separate our network into various vlans. Our license server along with many pcs is in vlan 5 (192.168.5.X) and we moved 4 computers over to vlan 10 (192.168.10.X).

When everything is on the same vlan the program opens fine, but when I move the 4 computers to vlan 10 the solidworks initial splash screen pops up but after a couple of seconds it says not responding and closes. We move them back to vlan 5 and the program opens like normal.


The 4 computers can access everything on the server when on vlan 10 and can ping the server with <1ms. I also tried copying a large file from the desktop to the server and vice versa with the computer on both vlans and there was no noticeable difference.


Do you guys know if this is a problem with the license server or know how to solve this issue?
