-allow ssh port and ping in iptables
# echo “-A INPUT -i eth0 -p tcp -m tcp –dport 22 -j ACCEPT” >> /etc/sysconfig/iptables
# echo “-A INPUT -i eth0 -p icmp -j ACCEPT” >> /etc/sysconfig/iptables
# service iptables restart
put license directly, just put into /opt/citrix/licensing/myfiles
make sure XenDesktop license hostname match with license server hostname

-to change https port
# vi /opt/citrix/licensing/LS/conf/server.xml
search for securePort

-On the License Administration Console go to Administration > Server Configuration > Secure Web Server Configuration. Select Enable HTTPS.
-To enable HTTP to HTTPS redirection, select Redirect non-secure web access to secure web access click Save and restart the license server. This moves HTTP traffic to go over HTTPS

>netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name=”Temporary Block for Licensing Admin PowerShell” dir=out protocol=TCP remoteip=<IP of License Server> remoteport=8083
>netsh advfirewall firewall delete rule name=”Temporary Block Web Services For Licensing” dir=out protocol=TCP program=”c:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Licensing\UsageCollector\ctxurt.exe” remoteport=443
