Thanks for the replies people!
But, can someone briefly explain why if I was to use Apache/HTTP to access the repository there is no problem, yet if I was to use file:// or a mapped drive then there may be a licensing problem? What exactly is the different?

>Furthermore, depending on your agreement terms, there are per-user CALs

>Simply, read the fine-print and visit/ask your Reseller for specifics.
