I have installed the IPv4 license tools and I am wondering if I need to download and install the IPv6 license tools?
1. If the license server is up and Windows XP clients can connect to the license server but Windows Vista & Windows 7 clients can't connect to the license server.
2. When you run an the command ipconfig -all on your client computers or the license server and there are references to IPv6 in it. Typically, this would be on a Windows Vista or a Windows 7 computer.
The typical upgrade process is to install the IPv4 license tools first then run the IPv6 update. The workflow is below:
1. Download and Install the IPv4 license tools
- Double-click the nlm_ipv4Support_Win##.exe file on your desktop. This will extract the NLM.msi file to C:\install\Autodesk\NLMIPv4Support_Win## and start the installer wizard.
- If the installer wizard does not start automatically, locate the new NLM.msi file and double-click it to start the installer wizard.
- Follow instructions on the screen.After installation is complete, click Close.
2. I like to create an IPv4 folder in C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager and then move all the .exe files into that folder. This is to backup the older files.
3. Download and Extract the IPv6 license tools.
- Double-click the NLM_IPv6Support_Win##.exe file on your desktop.The IPv6 Support files, lmtools.exe, lmutil.exe, lmgrd.exe, and adskflex.exe, are extracted to C:\install\Autodesk\NLMIPv6Support_Win##.
- Copy the new IPv6 Support files from C:\install\Autodesk\NLMIPv6Support_Win## to the location where your existing Autodesk Network License Manager is installed. i.e. C:\Program Files\Autodesk Network License Manager
4. To confirm if you are running the IPv6 of license tools, just check out the IP address field of lmtools.exe interface.
IPv4 Interface - lmtools.exe
IPv6 interface - lmtools.exe
NOTE: If the server is 32 bit, the IP address will look the same. The screen capture above is on a 64 bit operating system.
5. I have rarely need to run the IPv6 update for Mac or Linux. If necessary, the tools are available here.
NOTE: You can disable IPv6 here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852
