If you have followed all the instructions in the Network License Server Setup article and the license server does not supply licenses to client computers, any of these problems could be the cause.
- Software or drivers on the client computers or server could be trying to use the same communications (com) port as the FARO license manager service (hasplms) causing port conflicts and stopping the server from supplying licenses.
- The FARO license manager service could be stopped for some reason. There may be some thing or some rule in the IT environment that prevents the service from running.
- Com ports on client computers could be blocked by firewalls.
This article provides initial troubleshooting that identifies causes, but you may need help from your IT representative to finally resolve issues in your computing environment.
Please review this table before you begin to ensure your success.

- Click the Windows Start button and in the Search field type taskmgr, then press Enter. The Windows Task Manager appears.
- Click the Services tab and sort the PID column ascending to descending. Look for the PID you recorded in step 2. The Name of that PID should be hasplms and the Status should be Running.
- If the hasplms is not running, right click on the row and click Start Service. This may resolve the issue. But, when the computer is rebooted and you check the service again, if the Status is Stopped, there may be a rule or something in the IT environment turning off the service. Contact your IT representative.
- If the hasplms is running, but the server still does not supply licenses to the client computers, go to Check if Firewall is Blocking the FARO License Manager.
- Perform the steps to Check the FARO License Manager Service Status.
- If the hasplms status is Running on the server and the client computers, but the server does not supply licenses to client computers, a firewall may be blocking communication between them. Contact your IT representative and ask that a firewall port exception be created for port 1947.
