Cannot assign requested address


Cannot assign requested address on Floating License Server startup from ZIP archive distribution.

* FAILED ServerConnector@2243bc0d{HTTP/1.1}{notexistinghost.jetbrains.com:8080}: java.net.BindException: Cannot assign requested address


Make sure that the host/port you configured exists and its address is available.

This error may also occur when the host you configured server doesn't match FQDN or IP of the machine where it is installed.

Check the host name.

hostname -f
ipconfig /all

Compare obtained host name with the host specified in the configuration file.


If they don't match, adjust configuration so that they do.

Use for reconfiguration:

<fls_home>\bin\license-server.bat configure \ --listen-address <correct-listen-address-or->
