Netware licensing...

In a Netware 6.5 SP8 environment, how many licenses are used if a user is set so he/she can have 2 "maximum connection" logins? Does that use 1 or 2 licenses (when 1 user is logged in on 2 computers with the same network ID)?

Each individual user always only needs one license per eDirectory
tree,regardless how often he/she logs in simultaneously.

Re: Netware licensing...

so, in theory, a company with 1000 employees could have only 1 single user license IF all 1000 people logged into the network with the same ID..... Is that correct? I certainly hope it doesn't work that way.....

Depends on the definition of "theory". 😉

In fact, no. That would be violationg the EULA, which clearly states
that each individual person must have and use a seperate, personal user
ID. It's not allowed to share User IDs.

Works, technically, yes. Legally? No.
