Need help getting free developer SQL Anywhere 16 to work

I'm trying to test it with our LogicMonitor monitoring software so I downloaded the free "developer edition" and installed it on a Windows 8.1 computer.  I can successfully connect from that local PC to the demo database and do a query but I cannot connect from a different computer on my network. In fact, I don't even think that it's listening on any port (including the typical 2638) because I ran the command netstat -aon and that port doesn't show as listening. Also, nothing showed as listening in the similar "CurrPorts" freeware.

Other evidence...I would think that there SHOULD be a service for this database but I don't see any obvious in Windows Services.msc utility.

I haven't found any articles yet indicating that this free developer edition cannot do remote/network connections but I'm beginning to wonder.

Any tips and info are appreciated.
