Port numbers in OpenLM – AN3017

The OpenLM Utilizer is a licensing management software. It provides productivity tools for system administrators, managers and end users. OpenLM’s basic software package includes the core OpenLM Server module and its user interface; the OpenLM EasyAdmin module. In addition to these core components, the OpenLM software package includes modules and capabilities which provide additional functions. In order to interface these components and obtain full functionality of the OpenLM software, it is essential to open certain port numbers.

OpenLM license Server

The OpenLM Server is the core element of the OpenLM Utilizer system. It integrates the functionality of all other OpenLM peripheral system components, such as the OpenLM EasyAdmin, OpenLM Agent, OpenLM Alerts, and OpenLM Broker. It is responsible for collecting information from various system components and storing it in an embedded relational DB. External databases like MySQL and Microsoft SQL Server version starting with 2012 are also supported.


The main interface for setting the port numbers on the OpenLM server’s side is the OpenLM Server configuration tool, on the Port Settings tab:

License manager: Default port 7016

1. The OpenLM Server interfaces the License manager over a dedicated port. this port’s default number is 7016.

2. The OpenLM Broker is an optional software component that runs on the license server machine. It interfaces the OpenLM Server via that dedicated port. For additional information on the OpenLM Broker component, please refer to these Application notes:
