License Manager Tool - used ports and protocols

Anonymous
Not applicable
Hi everybody,

I need a list of used network-ports by the "GS-License Manager Tool" (and all the components, which co-operate in with the LMT-service....)

I get this link by german support:
https://graphisoft.com/de/downloads/licensing/help/ger/system_requirements

it lists these adresses:

http://activity-api.graphisoft.com
• graphisoftid.graphisoft.com
• graphisoftid-api.graphisoft.com
• licensemanager.graphisoft.com
• ruleservice-api.graphisoft.com
• bimx-service.graphisoft.com
https://bimx-api.graphisoft.com
https://bimx.graphisoft.com

To configure the firewall I must also define the protocol AND the used port(s) (also portrange alá "32625 - 32628" are allowed) - this is not a "technical issue" - it is the policy and "law" in the company (really big network)

It would be a shame, when "we" can not answer the simple question "What ports and services are used by your application?"

hope someone can help me soon

best regard from vienna,
Klaus

Dear Klaus,

Thank you very much for the question!

I'm wondering which Firewall software you are using? Usually adding those addresses into the exclusion list of firewall/antivirus program is enough for license communication.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Best regards,
Minh

Dear Minh,

Thank you for your reply - sorry for the long time to my answer - was in other buisness stressed...

Well, it is less a question of the used FEW-software - it is the scurity policies of the company (it is a govermental company and there are about 50 tsd. Clients in the network... so a quite big environment and ARCHICAD is a "quite exotic" software in this environment. (it will be only used by a few technic-guys)
The policies to open a connection to the internet from a "as server" declared maschine IS :
tell the sys-admin a good reason why you need the connection and the appname, protocol and the used ports.

It is not unusual that the sys-admin wants to know the port(s) and protocolls on which a app communicates through the internet - in my thought, this makes a responsible sys-admin, knowing what happens in "his/her" network...

also looking forward to your answer,
best regards from vienna,

Dear Klaus,

After consulting with the developer, I was told that License Manager Tool uses only the HTTPS communication with port 443.

Please let me know if this information is sufficient for your work. Thank you very much!

Best regards,
Minh

Dear Minh,

thank you very much for this certified information - it helps me a lot...

Maybe it is possible to add this information also to the "GS-documentation" of using LMT behind firewalls and network restrictions...
