Today’s topic is about testing the connectivity between the SOLIDWORKS SNL server and the client machine.

Troubleshooting solidworks snl server connectivity issues

There are several methods to do so.

  1. Ping test:
    • To ping the server, open a command prompt on the client machine (Start > Run > type ‘cmd’ and press enter).
    • Type ‘Ping server_name’ and press enter.

If both of these tests succeed, it means the connection between the server and the client machine is solid. If you still failed to borrow the license from the server, please contact your reseller for further investigation.
