Quartus II (13.1) Prime Pro license cannot be used after setting it on the server and locally

We have been trying to setup a network license on our internal server with the NIC. The server seems to be running fine from the logs.
However, when trying to access from my side (using Quartus 13.1 license setup) and the command lmutil lmstart -a -c 260000@<server name>, it is hanging forever and when looking at the server logs we see what is shown below, I rehosted the license twice already to make sure the MAC is correct, I have no idea why it is not working. We also tried using the license troubleshooter with no luck

Floating license issues aside, due to tryiug different methods, when rehosting the license on my PC and running it I get what seems to be reasonable acqusition, however, when building the FPGA I get the error below which indicates that I dont have the Cyclone III device license. We already paid around £5000 to get the license, we are using Quartus II 13.1 because that is the latest supporting Cyclone III. It is hard to image why we are not getting what we paid for

Hello ZOroo,


Thank you for contacting Intel Community Forum.


When refer to the file attached, this error might be occur when the ModelSim-Altera license daemon is out-of-date.


To get it fixed, you will need to upgrade the client PC daemon (mgcld) software to the newer version.


The new daemon software can be downloaded from the website.

You could also refer to KDB solution below

You can let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks!
