Error connecting to license server when using Workbench but not Mechanical?

      We have our license server set up on our university campus currently. This allows us to use the campus VPN to connect to it and fetch licenses remotely. However, even when physically on campus ANSYS Workbench fails to check out a license, instead throwing this error:

      This may be due to firewall blocking the VENDOR daemon port.
      In your license file add a port for the VENDOR:
      Example:
      SERVER Test 00505692f3df 1055
      VENDOR ansyslmd PORT=1056
      Then make sure there are Inbound/outbound firewall exceptions for Ports: 1055, 1056, 2325

      Yeah, we have the port specified (just as you gave here) and firewall exceptions. I actually tried disabling the firewall altogether using the Linux command
      sudo ufw disable
      which seemed to shut it down but I still had the same issues as above.
