  1. Download and install the Nmap security audit utility.
    The Nmap program will need to be installed on the client only. Nmap can be found here: Click here to download
    (Nmap is an open source product licensed under GPL additional info)

  2. Launch the Zenmap graphic front end for Nmap.
    Once installed there will be an Nmap program group under Start - Programs (or All Programs).
    Launch the Nmap - Zenmap GUI from within the Nmap program group.

  3. Configure and run the scan.
    Clear the ''Command'' field at the top of Zenmap (this will also clear the profile)
    Enter the below command in the Command field. Where <host> is the ip address or host.domain of your QuickTest Professional license server. This will also fill in the Target field for you.

    nmap -sU -p 5093 -PN <host>

    (Be sure to pay attention to the capital letters as this is case sensitive.)

  4. Click the Scan button at the top right of the program window.

  5. Analyze the results. The scan results will be posted in the Nmap Output section.

There are 3 possible main outcomes that we need to look for:

        1)    5093/UDP    open                  unknown
        This indicates that the License Manager service is running on port 5093 and is listening for a connection.  There is not a block on the inbound requests.

        2)    5093/UDP    open/filtered        unknown
        This indicates that the License Manager service may be running on port 5093 and listening for a connection, but is filtered or behind a firewall (blocked to inbound requests).

        3)    5093/UDP    closed                unknown
        This indicates that the License Manager service is not running.  There is no service running to accept the connection request being placed by the client.

What error do you get when trying to connect UFT to the license server? What version of UFT are you running? What version of Sentinel License Manager is running on the license server?

It is required to open this port on Routers and/or firewalls on client and server, as well as entire route in between client and server otherwise all communication between them will be blocked. This article describes running on the license manager server, which is only one part of the entire picture. Check that the 5093 port is open bi-directional for UDP protocol on the client as well as all points (hops) in-between. Could be that the client machine doesn't allow outgoing traffic on this port, or that a router or firewall in the network path to the license manager server does not allow.

@vinod_bk, make sure your network admin allows fragmented UDP packets through your firewall(s).
