Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 28249
flexlm cant query dongle in parrallelport
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:33 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.16-22 i686)
when trying to license my app. (Maya from AliasWavefront), flexlm cannot
query the dongle in the parrallel port.
'lmhostid -flexid ' simply returns "" as the flexid.
Both port and dongle works fine while running in windows.'
So either its a problem with redhat7 or Globetrotter's flexlm
Steps to Reproduce:
1. insert dongle into parallel port
2. run lmhostid -flexid
Actual Results: lmhostid returns an empty "" flexid string
Expected Results: It should return the flexid of the dongle like: 7-b3423b
the severity below doesnt have a matching line, this is quite severe since
you cant license software using dongles.
It seems to be a flexlm problem, Im just now trying to confirm that flexlm on
Linux does not currently support flexid dongles
This looks very much like a flexlm problem, and we're going to assume
that it is such unless we find out information to the contrary.
Please re-open this bug report with that information if you get it.
