Open a port on SBS2008
Posted on 2011-02-28
Hi - I have a brand new SBS2008 installation. Our company is an engineering company that uses 3D CAD software with a license server running that distributes floating software licenses.
As I brought the new server online, none of my users can now gain access to our software - they are getting an error that the license server may be offline.
I installed the Dongle/Licensing manager on our new SBS server, but it's still not working. I opened up port 27001 (that's the port that the LM is using) on the SBS firewall, but it's still not working.
I tried to telnet into the server into the port 27001 and I can't connect.
How do I open this port so that my clients can access the server? I do have a firewall on the permiter of the network with these ports closed. I just need it opened for the domain inside our office here.
