I've been asked to set up our farm so our video guys can render/export from Premiere through Deadline.
My understanding is that to able to render Premiere sequences on a farm through Deadline you have to go through Media Encoder.
So I've installed AME on a test machine, with its license, tested, launching ME locally and worked as expected.
Then we did a test submitting through Deadline and we get a AMEServer Offline error.
On the Deadline side everything seems correct, I've double checked with their support, in fact if I run manually the same command that Deadline calls on the test machine I get the same error:
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Media Encoder 2021>ame_webservice_console.exe
Launching web services. Use --help for options.
Starting HTTP service on ip 127.0.0.1, port 8080

I've installed both win and web services as described here ( https://stackoverflow.com/questions/43322235/adobe-media-encoder-cc2014-sdk-api-webservice/47677659#... ) and I see them running and changed in ame_webservice_config.ini 127.0.0.1 with the static IP of the machine but still no luck.
Where can I download an older version of AME like 2018 to test? Maybe is the 2021...?
Fixed, rolling back to AME 2020, it seems that is a bug of AME 2021
