On the command line,
-source houdini_setup_bash ( Ubuntu uses a bash shell by default)
-hkey (which will start the license administrator, and if there is
still a problem the server key button at the bottom will be red)
-sudo /etc/init.d/sesinetd restart
-then in the View menu of the administrator choose Refresh. Hopefully
the server will be validated.
