Licensing and port 2080


Port 2080 is the default port used by the Autodesk licensing service daemon (adskflex).

In most cases, you don’t have to specify the port number when you set ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE:

set ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE=LICSERVER-PC

Sometimes, depending on how the server is set up, you may need to add the port number:

set ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE=2080@LICSERVER-PC

Port 2080 is registered with the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), and it’s unlikely you’ll ever have to use a different port.

But if you do, there’s two things you have to do. First, you need to change the port number on the VENDOR line of your license file:

SERVER LICSERVER-PC 0000deadbeef
USE_SERVER
VENDOR adskflex port=2081

Then, on all workstations and render nodes, you’ll have to include the port number in ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE:

set ADSKFLEX_LICENSE_FILE=2081@LICSERVER-PC
