Flexlm is installed on Fedora 7 ( No errors issued during installation. Starting the license server with 'bin/toolworks_init start' yields this message in the license.log file: "Failed to open the TCP port number in the license." The port we're using is 7127. Haven't tried others as this is the one the install script found to use.

We are not running firewalls or other port blocking security as we are in a totally closed lab environment. We're able to run flexlm on an older version of linux with the same port. Is this an issue with my installation or Fedora 7?


UPDATE: I've solved my problem. Fedora 7 does a funny thing to the /etc/hosts file. The problem was that there was not an entry for localhost, i.e., localhost. After making the change to include that entry, flexlm started up fine.
