Ranorex agent does not recognize license server

Post by seantab » Wed Jan 11, 2017 3:25 pm

Hi all,
I am using floating licensed Ranorex version 5.4.5. I also been told our license server is 5.4.4 which works fine with our version of Ranorex. I also been told that we have 4 run time licenses in addition to 4 floating Ranorex licenses.
I recently downloaded Ranorex remote agent, installed fine, but I am unable to register it with our license server. Initially I thought our firewall is blocking the communication, but I tested it with Ranorex app, and it is able to see the license server.

I know for the fact that no one else in our company using the agents so I should have 4 available remote agent licenses, and assuming we do have the 4 agent floating licenses, could someone help me why my agents do not register with license server? If I need an older compatible remote agents, where do I download older version ?

Thanks for your help

Ranorex remote agent is a Ranorex 6 feature! You will have to buy and use Ranorex 6 in order to use Ranorex remote agents and remote functionality as such! In other words, there is no way to use Ranorex remote functionality with Ranorex 5.4.5.
