Help Licensing for Mac (NLM)

Been trying for a day to get Arnold licensing to work with NLM in macOS. The server is running on the client. I've put flexnetserver in usr/local/ (with read/write permissions to all files, autodesk license is in this folder too). I've put .flexlrmc in /users/myname/. When I launch Cinema, Arnold still has the watermark. In "connect to license server" it says "Found 1 NLM license (0 in use)". I've tried using 5053 and the machine name for connecting and nothing seems to work. Not sure what else to try at this point, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Solved it! Turns out I needed to type in both localhost info in the "Connect to License Server" popup in Cinema. Anyone else looking for this solution (server and client on same machine): for the RLM box I needed to type "5053@localhost" (no quotes) and for NLM I needed to type "@localhost" (no quotes). Pressing connect on both worked for some reason (it issued an RLM license though NLM still says 0). Not sure why.

Unless you have an RLM license, there's no need to enter anything in the Solid Angle (RLM) box.
