      You have issue with MPI. Either security software blocking it or there is something messing with your local networking.

      For local networking issue, try this:

      In Fluent Launcher page, click Show More Options -> Parallel Settings , then set

      MPI Type = MSMPI

      Check box for 'Select IP Interface' and select the IP address.

      For security issue, you will have to try narrow it down which of your security causes this MPI issue. I recommend to try turning everything off at first and work your way back to narrow down the cause.
