Sometimes it is desirable for a license server to be behind a firewall. Reprise licensing supports this, but there is a small amount of configuration that must be performed.
If there is an active firewall on the license server node which is not allowing the software to check out a license, you must use a fixed port for the ISV Server by putting a port=<port number> on the ISV line. Without this designation, the port floats and the operating system chooses a port. The port chosen will be a different one every time RLM starts up unless you specify the fixed port. Note: You may not use port 5054 because 5054 is the RLM Web Server Port, not the ISV Server Port.
