The hosts File
The Windows hosts file allows the user to define which domain names (websites) are linked to which IP addresses. It also allows you to define the hostname and IP address of each of the computers on your network.
Modifying the hosts FileFrom the Folder menu, browse to c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc folder.
From Notepad, open the following file: c:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts.
You will need to define the IP address hostname of the server, as well as the IP address and hostname of your computer as a minimum.
Failure to properly define the hosts file may result in license manager error where the client can't access the server and therefore can't get a license to run the tools.
