      Hi
      I installed Ansys 2021 R2. I am facing a problem in launching fluent. Fluent window automatically closed after showing "The fluent application failed to validate the connection." when i try to launch fluent. I have attached some screenshots related to that.

      Thank You

      The issue is host resolution. The users are specifying the license server by ip address, likely because they cannot resolve the hostname WIN-R9JB9KVTPKS.  If that is the correct hostname of the license server, please have the users try adding an entry in their C:\Windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts file that reads:

      130.63.63.15    WIN-R9JB9KVTPKS

      Then they can test by running a "ping WIN-R9JB9KVTPKS" command to see if it succeeds. If it does, then try running Fluent.
