Linking and Academic License

    • Gage Gardinier

      Hello! Not sure if this post belongs in this forum, if not, please feel free to move it.

      I currently have ANSYS free student software downloaded and installed on my PC. My goal with this software was to get some practice with magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) simulations, but I recently found out you need a full license to access the MHD addon module. 

      I have recieved licensing server and port information from my university, but I am not sure how to link the license to my account. I attempted to link the account through the ANSYS Licensing Settings application, but I am getting a error which states "Could not get FlexNet servers" under the license servers tab.

      Any guidance would be appreciated!

      To configure the license server in the client machine, follow the below steps:
      1. Go to Start> Ansys 202x Rx> ANSYS Client Licensing Settings 202xRx (Right click and “Run as Administrator”)
      2. Go to Flexnet Publisher and enter the port number (1055 is default) and license server name in the required fields and hit Test. A green check will be shown which means you are connected to this license server. Click Save.
