[C4D] I need help! / Re: Team render and licences
« on: 2019-07-31, 14:54:48 »
We have a bunch of issues with visiting PCs communicating with Macs for filesharing also, and I imagine this is a similar issue.

Are there plans to release a Mac version of the licencing server? Or maybe also the ability to add Corona serials to MAXON's licence server (I've seen some other plugins use this)

Very interesting.

The logs in the licence server do not change at all. It seems the macs aren't reaching the licence server at all, rather than the server not issuing the licence.

My hunch would be there is something odd going on with Windows networking that I am unqualified to fix! I will play with some settings some more and see where I get to.

~/Library/Application\ Support/Corona/ seems to work.

I'd love to know why the licence server doesn't work though, if you or any Corona employees have any insight it would be very helpful. Is the licence server also supposed to be able to licence the plugin from within cinema 4d? Or just render nodes?

Macs have the firewall turned off by default. I can ping the licence server no problem, and they're on the same subnet. I can also do a port scan with the server as the target and the right port is listed.

Can you confirm whether macs running team render are able to get licences from the licence server? If not is there a way to give them a licence manually?

Ok. So If I install c4d render client and corona on the licence server, it works (so the licence server can communicate with the internet)

Even if I disable the firewall on the corona licence server (on a PC), it still doesn't work on the Mac clients (which are not using a firewall). What do you mean by 'open ports'? If I'm not using a firewall on either, this means that the ports are all open, yes?

Very confused as to why this isn't working.

Ah - Sorry for the double post. I posted in the wrong place and couldn't see how to delete it.

I can't get the licence server to work at all - it's installed but the render nodes won't see it. The licence server is running on the same subnet as the render nodes, and the ports are open. What else do I need to do? I can't seem to find a way to troubleshoot it.

We have 5 x FairSaas +3 node licences that are being used in C4D R20 on a number of Macs, and also have a number of spare macs that have team render client installed on them that are used for ad hoc rendering (the more spare machines we have, the more are used for team render)

I've installed the licence server on a PC on the network, but no matter what I do I can't seem to get the render nodes to activate properly. I think that we're supposed to have 15 available render licence (5 licences x 3 nodes?). They just show up with 'No Licence Loaded' in the Team Render Client console.

The only work around I have has been to open c4d on the team render machines and activate the 45 day licence. This isn't really sustainable. Can anyone help?
