Hey, I am on windows 10, connecting with remote desktop to a machine that is running Vivado 2016.2. On my windows 10 machine, I installed the "Vivado 2017.3 Hardware Server for Windows" from here:
I launch hw_server on my windows 10 computer by entering c:\Xilinx\HWSRVR\2017.3\bin\hw_server.bat into my command prompt. On the remote machine running vivado 2016.2, I open a new hardware target, and select connect to remote server. I enter the information for host name and port given by the hw_server running on my laptop.
I get the message:
I can't seem to fix this, any suggestions?

Hi @etkrawczyk ,
A couple of suggestions:
1. Try to use IP address instead of hostname. I found that using IP has better chance to work than hostname
2. I've seen that 2017.2 and 2017.3 client and server don't work well with each other. I've seen explicit message about version mismatch once. So try to have the same version of both client and server.

You have to use the same version of hw manager on both sides. 2016.2 > 2016.2 or 2017.3 > 2017.3. Also the releases with a in between (like 2017.3.1) need to match also. For example 2017.3.1 will not connect to a 2017.3 build. Let us know if that resolves your issue. Also check firewalls/antiviruses that could be clocking this port. You need to be on the same network aswell.

I use IP address can't solve this problem. I had to turn off windows 10's firewall. Could someone tell me how to solve this problem without turning off windows's firewall?
