BusinessObjects Enterprise Client Tools XI 3.1 SP3 Connection Error

Hello everybody,

I installed BusinessObjects Enterprise XI 3.1 SP3 on the server, the server has Windows Server Enterprise 2007.

Locally, in my Laptop, I installed the BusinessObjects Enterprise Client Tools XI 3.1 SP3, but i can´t connect with the CMS using the Webi, or anyother tool to the server. I made everything that is in the administrator, installation and configuration guides, but reading the administrator guide for Query as a WebService I read that if you install the BusinessObjects Enterprise Tools you need a key license to us it, the question will be this.

Do i need a different license than the one what i use to install the BusinessObjects Enterprise on the server to install, connect and use the BusinessObjects Enterprise Client Tools XI 3.1 SP3 on every machine that i install and use for it????

Thanks and regards.

    You do not need separate or additional license for the Client Tools.

    Most often Client tools cannot connect to server components because :

    1. CMS server is not running on the server

    2. There is a firewall between Client machine and the server machine and firewall specific settings were not done. (Admin guide - working with firewalls section).
