Webinator Professional Version trying to contact license server ?

Post by jean-pierre.queille »

Hi

Though we are using Professional Version for our intranet, I found that the monitor.log file is full of
200 2008-08-05 12:50:58 (1328) Contacting license server
006 2008-08-05 12:51:19 (1328) Cannot connect to ls.thunderstone.com:80: Socket timeout
000 2008-08-05 12:51:19 (1328) Could not contact license server

Not surprising that license server cannot be reached, our server in on our intranet behind a firewall and is not allowed to connect to the outside world.

Everything seems to work fine anyway. So I didn't care at first time. But now I would like to know if this behaviour is normal. And if not, how to fix it.

Complete license information :
Texis Web Script (Vortex) Copyright (c) 1996-2006 Thunderstone - EPI, Inc.
Webinator Professional Version 5.01.1161965127 20061027 (i686-intel-winnt-32-32)

I'm also surprised by the flag "Non-intranetable" displayed here.

Thank you for your answer.

That's normal. It will always attempt to phone home to see if there are license updates (the non-intranetable flag controls that). But failure is acceptable.

Thanks. Is it possible to switch this flag (and how ?).

Open a tech support ticket to request a non-phone home license.
