Firewall and Network License Manager configuration

For Preactor to access a network license, any firewall protecting the server that hosts the license must be configured to allow traffic.

For example, to configure Microsoft Windows Firewall on Server 2008 R2.

Open the Windows Firewall control in Control Panel. Click 'Allow a program or feature through Windows Firewall'.

Click the 'Allow another program...' button and browse to C:\Program Files(x86)\Preactor International\Network License Manager\Preactor\Preactor.exe.

Add the 'Preactor license daemon' to the list of 'Allowed programs and features'

Preactor is configured to use automatic port allocation by default. We recommend using a specific port. Configure the Preactor Network License Manager to use a specific port as detailed in the online help:

Also, configure the command definition file to define a specific port in the license tab.

***Advanced Information***

The web interface port (2188) is HTTP and uses basic Apache authentication. The license server and vendor daemon ports use a custom application protocol, specific to Flexnet licensing, running on TCP.
