Hi Hua,

What IP did you bind the license to?
Could you paste your ipconfig /all?
Pretty much any IP can be used that's not a loopback ip.

I would recommend binding the license to a MAC address since its static, while the IP address can change.

Go to http://checkip.dyndns.org/ to check what IP address you are identified with outside your local network.

Hi, this seems like a similar issue tot eh on e I am receiving. I have an external IP which is assigned via NAT.  The scheduled services seem to run as the servers local IP and as such fail to run as the local IP is not the external IP that the license is bound to.  Is there a way to resolve this?

You should bind the license to the internal ip. It needs to be bound to something that the EPiServer code can find (local adapters only). For servers, using MAC or IP of a local adapter is pretty much the same. If you need to replace the adapter or machine due to hardware failure, the IP address can be re-used by new hardware, but the MAC is adapter specific. But most adapters allow you to change the MAC address too, so it is really does not matter.

I had the same problem, but solved it when I found out that someone changed the licenseFilePath= in episerver.config to the site root, which had an outdated license.config file

Hi,

I am having the same problem. I ahve generated the license with Public IP address: 54.83.148.10 and I started getting error "54.83.148.10 is not a valid ip-address"

I ahve pasted my ipconfig /all result from the server end. Please have a look into the same and suggest for the solution.

If I am not misstaken I think it will read the internal Ip (IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 10.0.0.165(Preferred))

As said earlier in this thread, it is better to bind on MAC since that will not change.
