Activating local PC to use RLM server installed on linux system

I am trying to install Cubit on my local PC but it cannot find the license file. The software is installed on a linux cluster here, which is where the RLM server was originally setup. As I usually ssh into the cluster I don’t think it can find where the host is installed. Please help!

Hi @blinn, do you know where your license server is installed? Do you have access to the license file there? What address are you using in the Floating license activation option to try to connect to it?

yes, I was trying to put the ip address from the rlm_diagnostics file. Here is the output of that file…

That IP is the address of your local computer, not the server. You’ll need to find where the license server is on your cluster in order to connect to it. Is there an IT admin you can ask for help?
The server port is 5053. You could try to do a port search with nmap or a similar tool to find a machine on your network with 5053 open.
