I am trying to help a customer with this. They are having problems using a license server to distribute licenses to network clients, they are using a virtual server (VM Box) on the server itself to host the license server.
I am sure the problem is that the virtual server is not listening to the specific port (1400) on the physical server, and that is the reason why any client asking for a license through that port is not getting an answer. My customers are adamant about this not being the case, they say that they have made changes to VM Box to listen to the port.
Is there a way I can test this to make sure that the port is open upto the virtual server (VMWare is listening to the port on physical server)? I am able to Telnet to the port 1400 from a client computer, but that does not tell me if the virtual server is listening to it as well.
I am remotely supporting this, they are working to have access for me to the server, this might take time, so I need to be able to test it, they are willing to test but I am not sure what to do here.
If I am missing any information, let me know. Please know that network support is not what I do, but I like going above and beyond.
