ports used by license manager and daemon

Even though you only define one port number on the SERVER line of the license file, there are actually two ports used by the license manager and daemon.
The client program never talks to the daemon directly. Rather the license manager (lmrgd) acts as an intermediary. lmgrd is responsible for launching the various daemons, hence it will know/assign what port the daemons will use. For example, the user can assign both ports in the license file:

SERVER blade 80FB280F 1514                 ---- 1514 is the port for the clients to talk to, i.e. 1514@blade
VENDOR act_inc /etc/opt/licenses/act_inc
VENDOR artwork /etc/opt/licenses/artwork port=2815    ----  2815 is an optional target/dedicated port for the actual daemon
