Using a text editor e.g. notepad, open up the license.lic

1.  Append the line VENDOR numinno with the keyword port and the desired port number


VENDOR numinno port=xxxx

where xxxx is the desired port number.

2.  Save the file and restart the FLEXlm license server.

3. Once the server is started, the log file should show that the vendor daemon is started at the specified port.

16:00:07 (lmgrd) lmgrd tcp-port 27000
16:00:07 (lmgrd) Starting vendor daemons ...
16:00:07 (lmgrd) Starting vendor daemon at port 1234
16:00:07 (lmgrd) Using vendor daemon port 1234 specified in license file
16:00:07 (lmgrd) Started numinno (pid 3560)
