After you have your server running and the CodeMeter driver is installed, start the server as described below:
All CodeMeter settings can be managed in CodeMeter WebAdmin. To start it: Open CodeMeter Center (from Applications or using the Start menu) and click on WebAdmin or simply open localhost:22350 on your browser.
To enable the CodeMeter server:
1.Go to Configuration/Network tab.
2.Check Run Network Server checkbox.
3.Do not forget to Apply the changes.
From that point, the server runs and shares licenses on the local network.
Important Note: Whenever CodeMeter is updated on your computer, you must restart BIMcloud Manager and BIMcloud Server. Failure to do so may affect backup/snapshot creation.
Client Side Settings
All clients on the local network should find the server automatically. In case this does not work (e.g. your server is in a different subnet, or you are connecting remotely through the Internet), then you may need to specify the server's hostname IP address. On the client:
3.Add the server to the Server Search List.
This field can have multiple entries; the client searches for available licenses in the specified order and only on the specified servers. Only when the list is empty does the client search for other available servers."
Automatically, the license was detected on other clients' computers. However after a couple of weeks, without changing the settings and configurations, the clients could no longer access the license.
Here is a screenshot of the server's configuration:
Although the IP address of the server is added to the client's server search list, the problem still persists. And when they open Archicad, they're still in trial mode.
7. Reinstall CodeMeter Runtime with the 'Network Server' option enabled. Note: Archicad installation may have installed CodeMeter Runtime without activating the 'Network Server' option, so you need to reinstall the runtime. In this case, the CodeMeter installer will automatically create the required firewall rule (Windows).
8. Server shows remote connection attempts in server log:
Check the "Events" tab in the CodeMeter Control Center
9. There are enough free licenses available. The number of available license should be greater than or equal to the total number of active users.
10. CodeMeter license allows network mode. If your license is 'Local' one, ask your dealer to convert your license to 'Network' one.
