License Server not available! Help!

Hello all.
I have a problem with SW license server. Computers are Windows based
(XP & Win2k3 Server). I have a license server on one location and I'm
trying to start SolidWorks 2006 on another location (example: location
1 IP:10.35.20.19, location 2 IP: 10.35.30.15). When I try to start SW ,
it returns message; License server unavailable. I have checked
connection between computers and everything is fine, ping returns that
connection exists between computers.
Does anyone have any idea why doesn't it work???
Thanks in advance!

One solution could be:
Close Windows firewall in license server. We had same problem.

or add exception - port 25734 or port which is in use to share licenses.

try install server on your workstation and then check is it ok and SWX can be run check date on both PCs - there should be no difference - if you can synchronise them, it will be great did you check Windows firewall? Some users don't know that there is one in WinXp&2003 call to your reseller and ask them
Maybe your License server is older than SolidWorks version? If you upgrade SWX on your workstation, you should upgrade SWXLS on server.
Please, tell us how's this issue looks like...

Check that the license server daemon is running aswell - if the sw_d daemon isn't running, you will get the error that you see. Best place to look is in the Flex log file in the license admin tool (Start > Programs > Solidworks SolidNetwork License Manager > SolidNetwork License Administrator). Click "View Log" and you can see any errors that occured during license server startup.
If the server started OK, you should see a line like this in the log file....
