I encountered a particular problem when running the X frontend under Irix 6.2 for Mathematica 2.2.3.
Launching the local kernel from the X frontend leads to the error message "Lost connection to license server".
If the kernel is started for itself no problems occur. The license server runs on an HP box running HP-UX 9.05
Tracking the problem further down shows that the kernel starts correctly when launched from the frontend, but looses the connection after a few seconds. Choosing the option "Retry server" leads to success after 3 or 4 retries, but this eats up that many licenses.
I suspect a problem somewhere in between mathserver, mathclient and math (or frontend). I traced the UDP packets exchanged between mathclient and mathclient but they appear to be intact.
HP and SUN clients do not show up this problem.
Anybody out there who had the same problem (and may be solved) ? May be any ideas ?
Thanks for any input.
