Changing the default port (5053) used for communication between the License Manager and ExtendSim.
You can edit the license to use a di erent port than the default port (5053). However, how you do that depends
on your situation:
• If you received the extendsim.lic  le while doing a manual activation but haven't resumed the activation process,
directly change the port number in the  le and save that change before proceeding. Then complete the activation
procedure. Be sure to give the updated extendsim.lic to each Client.
• If you have already  nished the process of activating the License Manager, you must edit your existing
extendsim.lic  le using the RLSA window.
1. Using a browser, open the RLSA window as indicated at Step 2 • Activate License Manager on page 2 of the
separate document Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses.
2. On the left side of the RLSA window, click the Edit License Files command. (Note: The“License File to Edit”
should be extendsim.lic.)
3. In the window that appears, click the Edit License File button.
4. In the license  le  eld, change “5053” (the default port number) to a di erent number. Note that the new port
must be unblocked inbound and outbound for both the License Server and the Client devices.
5. Click the Update License File button. The window should report “license  le extendsim.lic written”.
6. On the left-hand side of the RLSA window, click the Reread/Restart Servers command.
7. For the ISV, select extendsim, then click the Reread/Restart button to restart the License Manager.
8. If successful, the window will display the message “Reread command sent to extendsim”. This indicates that the
new port will be added as an alternate port.
9. Be sure to copy the updated extendsim.lic  le to each Client.
What does the "Connection refused at server (-111)" message mean?
This message indicates that one or more of two required ports are blocked. To support internal, end-to-end communications between the Server and Client devices, port 5053 and the ISV port need to be open for outbound access on Client devices and inbound access on the Server. Port 5053 is a TCP port. The ISV port is randomly selected by the License Manager and is shown in the table when
you click the Status command in the RLSA window; it can
change each time the Server is restarted.
Either unblock those two ports, or change one or both of the
ports to an unblocked permanent port as described elsewhere in this document. (Note: if the ISV port is blocked, we strongly setting an unblocked port to be the permanent ISV port. The ISV port you set will always be used even if the Server restarts.)
Changing the port for the ISV Server.
When the License Manager was activated, a random high-number port was assigned as the ISV Server port, as shown
in the Status command above. Each time the Server restarts, the ISV port will change to a di erent randomly selected port number. If the ISV port is blocked you can either unblock it or specify an unblocked port as the permanent ISV port.
If the port is blocked, we strongly suggest you set an unblocked port to be the permanent ISV port. That port will always be used even if the Server restarts.
To set a permanent port, use the RLSA window to edit your already-activated extendsim.lic license  le:
1. Using a browser, open the RLSA window as indicated at Step 2 • Activate License Manager on page 2 of the
separate document Installing & Activating ExtendSim Floating Licenses.
2. On the left side of the RLSA window, click the Edit License Files command. (Note: The “License File to Edit”
should be extendsim.lic.)
3. In the window that appears, click the Edit License File button.
4. In the license  le  eld, add to the "ISV extendsim" line the phrase
"port=nnnnn", where "nnnnn" is the unblocked port number you’ve
HOST ITIserver f06da4f564f7 5053
ISV extendsim port=12345
LICENSE extendsim exprv10  10.0 permanent 1
chosen. It should now read "ISV extendsim port=nnnnn" as shown here.
5. In the RLSA window, click the Update License File button. The window should report
“license  le extendsim.lic written”.
6. On the left-hand side of the RLSA window, click the Reread/Restart Servers command (this restarts the License
Manager, not your Server).
