Allowing Tekla on-premises license server to operate through Windows Firewall
When you set up Tekla on-premises license server in your network, you may also need to configure the firewall and antivirus settings:
- You need to allow the applications tekla.exe and lmgrd.exe to operate through the firewall on the license servers and on the client computers.
- The internal firewall at your company must allow the communication between the license server computer and the computers with Tekla Structures.
- If your Internet connection is restricted, change your firewall settings to allow communications via TCP port 443 (the default HTTPS) with outbound for traffic to https://identity.trimble.com and https://activate.tekla.com.
- In addition to allowing the exceptions in your actual firewall, you may need to configure exceptions for Windows Firewall. Windows Firewall may be set on without you being aware of it, because some Windows updates may automatically turn on the Windows Firewall.
For instructions on how to modify the firewall settings so that the Windows Firewall on the license server allows licensing traffic, see:
Allow exceptions in firewall for lmgrd.exe and tekla.exe: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012
Allow traffic in fixed TCP/IP ports: Windows 7, 8, 8.1, 10 and Windows Server 2012
In addition to Windows Firewall, the information given also applies to firewalls from other vendors.
