Allow traffic in fixed TCP/IP ports: Windows Server 2008

You need to modify the firewall settings to allow traffic through fixed TCP/IP port. The following instructions apply to Windows Server 2008.

To allow traffic in fixed TCP/IP ports in Windows Server 2008 on the license server computer:

  1. Ensure that no other software or service is using the ports that you are about to set fixed.

    Use the command line command netstat -anp TCP to find out which ports are in use.

    The numbers in the Local Address column after the colon (:) are the port numbers that are in use.

  2. Browse for tekla.lic , and open it using a text editor.

    By default, the path is ..\TeklaStructures\License\Server.

  3. To set a fixed port for lmgrd.exe , enter the TCP/IP port number at the end of the SERVER row.

    The Automatic installation option sets the port to 27007.

  4. Enter the text port=free_port at the end of the VENDOR row, for example, port=1234.

    Defining the TCP/IP port number on the VENDOR row may slow down the restart time of Tekla Structures Licensing Service.

  5. Save the changes and close tekla.lic.
  6. Update your license server with the changes:
    1. Go to Tekla Structures Licensing > LMTOOLS through the Start menu or Start screen , depending on your Windows operating system.
    2. Go to the Service/License File tab and ensure that Configuration using services and Tekla Structures Licensing Service are selected.

    3. Go to the Start/Stop/Reread tab and stop the license server by clicking Stop Server , and then start the server again by clicking Start Server.
  7. Click Start > Control Panel > Windows Firewall .
  8. Click Allow a program through Windows Firewall in the left pane.
  9. On the General tab, make sure that you have not selected the Don’t allow exceptions or Block all incoming connections check box, depending on your Windows operating system .

    If you have selected the check box, the modifications do not take effect.

  10. On the Exceptions tab, click Add Port.

  11. In the Add a Port dialog box:
    • In the Name box, enter lmgrd.

    • In the Port box, enter the TCP/IP port number that you set in step 3.

  12. Click OK to confirm the changes.

    lmgrd is added to the list of exceptions.

  13. On the Exceptions tab, click again Add Port to open the Add a Port dialog box.
  14. In the Add a Port dialog box:
    • In the Name box, enter tekla.

    • In the Port box, enter the TCP/IP port number that you set in step 4.

  15. Click OK to confirm the changes.

    tekla is added to the list of exceptions.

  16. Click OK to confirm the modifications.
