Here's how to connect manually to your nearest Amazon Web Services (AWS) server in the event of a server issue or the extremely rare event of a Land F/X domain name outage. The following steps will set Land F/X to use an IP address, allowing you to continue working. You may need to switch AWS servers – for example, from U.S. East to U.S. West.
Important: Reinstalling Land F/X will not resolve this issue.
You will need to complete the following steps each time you open a new DWG, including detail files, until the issue is resolved.
1. In the list below, locate the name of the AWS server location nearest to you.
(setq _FXCLOUDSSL "http://188.8.131.52/")
(setq _FXCLOUDSSL "http://184.108.40.206/")
(setq _FXCLOUDSSL "http://220.127.116.11/")
(setq _FXCLOUDSSL "http://18.104.22.168/")
(setq _FXCLOUDSSL "http://22.214.171.124/")
2. Copy and paste the text below that server location into the AutoCAD Command line, then press Enter.
Be sure to copy the entire line, including the parentheses.
3. Run a Land F/X tool, such as opening the Project List from the F/X Admin ribbon. This step will pull a Land F/X license.
4. Repeat these steps each time you open a DWG, including detail files, until the issue is resolved with landfx.com.
