Connect to the Licensing Service for FlexNet Operations On-Premises When it Timeouts
SummaryWhen you try the appropriate URL as the license for FNO, you perpetually get Http timeouts (regardless of whether you try HTTP or HTTPS flavors of this URL).
QuestionConnecting to the licensing service for FlexNet Operations On-Premises finds the server and gets a response. Chrome reports that the URL is protected by a thawte certificate, so a proper HTTPS session has been set up. When trying the appropriate URL as the license for FlexNet Operations, perpetual HTTP timeouts occur regardless of trying HTTP or HTTPS.
AnswerDo you have a proxy in place that would prevent a successful connection? Windows web browsers automatically have the proxy set, thanks to Group Policy. The java-based wildfly server does not.
The JAVA_OPTS can be changed either in standalone.bat or standalone.conf.bat. The changes need to be only done to one of these files to append the proxy host and port information. Wildfly actually reads from these files.
The corresponding template files help FNO / wildfly retain configuration during restarts. So the change should be made to the .conf.bat[.template], but MS-DOS is fairly tenacious about getting the nonproxyhosts correct in their batch files. This should be the winning addition (names changed to generalize):
rem # Use Proxy to reach out to the Internet
set "JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Dhttp.proxyHost=my-proxy.maindomain.com -Dhttp.proxyPort=80 -Dhttps.proxyHost=my-proxy.main-domain.com -Dhttps.proxyPort=80 -Dhttp.nonProxyHosts=localhost^|127.0.0.1^|www.xxx.yyy.zzz^|*.maindomain.com^|*.intranetdomain.com"
