modeslim 10.5c very slow when using stand alone license

I have some servers at the LM_LICENSE_FILE and MGLS_LICENSE_FILE, also for continue working while I'm traveling I have a license.dat file at LM_LICENSE_FILE.

When I'm at the office everything works perfect and fast, but when I'm not connected to my company network modelsim is very very slow.

It takes from 1 to 5 minutes to open, also when I launch a simulation it compiles ok but when it get to:

# [exec] elab


it takes up to 5 minuts to show:


# vsim -t ps -L work -L work_lib -L fifo_171 -L fifoInput -L OutputFifo -L TFCInputFifo -L altera -L lpm -L sgate -L altera_mf -L altera_lnsim -L twentynm -L twentynm_hssi -L twentynm_hip Compactor_tb


and start simulating.


I suspect that this has something to do with modelsim trying to reach the license servers.

What would be the proper configuration to avoid these big delays?
