Hi,

Does this firewall hack work after applying a product key or before?

I have installed v12.2.0, on first start up, it is asking for product key (which i suppose is normal). Does the firewall hack work, on first execution of ISD?
or
do i have to apply product key first and then use the firewall hack...

i am a little bit lost.

Appreciate any help guidance.

best regards

You must successfully apply your Product Key 1st.  Then you may decide to work offline or do something to prevent re-validating your Product Key when operating online.


Cheers,

License Server sems to be down currently.
Iron Speed Designer on my machine aks for License key although I disconnected my machine from the internet.
It's also not possible to log into customers support in order to read ones license keys: "Unable to connect to database. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible...".
Has anyone a gues if the license server and customers support page will we available in foreseeable time?
best regards

I know this is cruel comfort, but I have to report that I have been up and running with Iron Speed for the last 4 hours with no issues.

I was not even aware that there was a problem until I opened the forums.

 

When this current license issue gets resolved I recommend that you all follow these procedures that I noted here.

 

The procedure involves modifying the windows machine hosts file.  I can confirm it works.  Start at thread #53 and continues with responses from porphi.

This is an alternate method that does not involve firewall settings.

In the case this doesn't get resolved, would it be a viable option to restore to a point when IS was working and then do host file hack before opening? Which folders would need to be restored, I have full images I can either do a full pc restore or any folder.

Unfortunately, I'm having the same problem.  I just looked, and these are the only files that were updated today after I attempted to open ISD.  I suppose they can be restored after blocking access to the license server and everything will be okay???

A Windows restore might do the trick.  I also image my C: drive regularly with Acronis.

Fellow Ironspeeders,

Can I get some advice here?  I am currently down due to licensing server issue.  The host file hack (I've had in place for a year or more) did nothing to stop me from losing connectivity so one of the things I have to do is tighten that up and get to a working blocked solution.

I am in a development environment with separate database and web servers.  I only had the web server host file (used 127.0.0.1 as opposed to 0.0.0.0) blocks in place... I did not know/think to do this with the database server.

As I was working in Designer when the server was lost last night the first error tossed was a lost SQL database connection.  Thinking that I need to also have host file blocks to IS in place there?  If not, can anyone weigh-in on why the host blocks wouldn't work?  Running Windows Servers 2008R2 and 2012 here.

thanks
miles

If you ping acs.ironspeed.com, it actually redirects to a different address.  It may be that we have to adjust our firewall settings to match.  Just a guess though.

HTH,

scotty, not quite sure I understand your post but, I also run separate web and db servers and always do my development on local machine .\

It sounds like your trying to mark out your servers in host file if Im reading it correctly??

I just did what was recommended and added this to my host file WHILE IS was working correctly and im back up and running, both locally and to my production servers.


0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0
0.0.0.0 acs.ironspeed.com
0.0.0.0 http://www.ironspeed.com

** take out the http://**

Hi Josh,

Yes thanks for response.

I am on Servers (no local) for Development and am trying to block out these Dev Servers.

I'll try your suggestions to hopefully avoid this again.

thanks

I am having the same issue.

Do I block out ironspeed in my HOST file using 0.0.0.0 or 127.0.0.1, which is what all other websites I have on that file are doing?

I've unblocked it either way and when I ping the ACS server I get this ...  so I don't think anything will work
sdfsdfsdfUntitled.png

Signing in is the same error. I suspect the ACS server is the SQL Server as well?

Unable to connect to database. A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)
