Adding and Modifying SolidNetWork License Server

To log in to a vault from a SOLIDWORKS PDM client, a license that matches the installed license type and version must be available. The license is retrieved from the SolidNetWork License server that is defined in the license setting. To add or modify SolidNetWork License server, you use the Set License dialog box available from the Administration tool.

To add or modify license server:

  1. From the Windows Start menu, click SOLIDWORKS PDM > Administration.
  2. In the Administration tool, create a file vault or expand the existing file vault.
  3. Right-click the License node and select Open.
  4. On the Server List tab, click Add.
  5. Enter the SolidNetWork License Manager's address in the form: port@SNLServerName
    The default port number is 25734. You can enter either the host name or IP address of the SolidNetWork License server for SNLServerName. Ensure that all clients are able to connect to the server by IP address or host name.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click the License Usage tab to ensure that SOLIDWORKS PDM licenses are available.
  8. Click OK.
