The Remote Solver in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is used to run flow analyses on a remote computer connected to the network.
You can see the general hardware and system requirements here.
Under Tools, Flow Simulation, Tools, Options, Remote Solver, set TCP port and directory for remote solver’s temporary files (Fig. 1).
Ensure TCP port inbound/outbound settings are open through the firewall.
Use ping [port number] or Telnet test to confirm a connection.
Figure 1. Step (2.1) – Set the inbound/outbound port number for remote solving.
Figure 2. Step (3.1) – Run command from Flow Simulation.
Figure 3. Step (3.2) – Browse to the remote computer.
Figure 4. Step (3.3) – Ensure “Remote Solver for Flow Simulation 20XX” is “Started”.
When the SOLIDWORKS and Flow Simulation licenses are used on the remote computer, the local machine cannot use those licenses.
See solver preview on the local computer, not a remote computer.
On the remote computer, when the solver is running, the Windows Task Manager will show the process “StandAloneSlv.exe”
We at GoEngineer want to make this process easy for our customers. If you require further explanation or feel your remote solver fails to work due to another unknown issue, please contact your local Value Added Reseller (VAR) or our Technical Support Team.
