I have a permanent license and my Gateway appears to be working okay and when I run the ./gagateway license I am getting expected license info but I am getting this error in the gagateway.log:

Any idea what is causing this?

Hi atarrant,

Gateway will try to reach out to the licensing portal at startup. This error occurs if your server does not have direct access to the internet or cannot access our licensing portal. In order to remove this error, you can open outbound ports 443 and 80 for my.goanywhere.com on your firewall.
