Running Houdini in a Docker Container

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

I recently started working with the Houdini Docker images that SideFX has published on their download page. I have gotten it to spin up a docker container and install Houdini, but when I go to attach to hython, the container's hserver is unable to connect to a license server, and after polling a few times it shut's down. I have tried a few things, including having the Dockerfile manually start the sesinetd service in the background, creating another license server container and pointing the hserver to that, but nothing I do seems to seems allow Houdini to find a license server. If anyone has any advice I would love to get this working, and if I could have it access the license server on the host machine that would be even better, but I will take what I can get at this point lol.
