This is likely because the vendor daemon port is getting blocked. 


On the server - 

Please navigate to the :\ANSYS Inc\Shared Files\Licensing\license_files

Copy the ansyslmd.lic file in the location to the desktop location and add ‘PORT=1056’ in the VENDOR ansyslmd line and save it in. Then replace the old ansyslmd.lic file with the new one in the above mentioned location.

Once this is done, please restart the license manager –


  • Go to start > ANSYS License Management Center
  • In the ‘View Status/Start/Stop License Manager’, STOP the service and START it again.
  • Ensure 1056 TCP is opened in the server side and the client machine.

Now retry the application.
