RE: Re: Licensing Issues (Windows Server)

For the 'svn' protocol, there would be the same restrictions as for Apache.

However, I wonder if what's been said here is right. You're still making a number of TCP/IP connections to the server. Doesn't that in itself require you to have a number of CAL's for the clients that access the server? No matter what protocol used / what server software is actually servicing the request? (Unless you buy the 'internet server version or something like that)

I remember that M$ limited the number of connections a WinXX box could service via such a clause in the license.

cheers,

I have been reading this discussion with interest and I also have a question:

When using the 'svn' protocol, what kind of restrictions bring that
regarding speed, security and licensing?
