Subject RE: [IBDI] IB License fees
Author Alan McDonald
So Ann,
when you say distribute to your hearts content - will that be a server with
unlimited client licence accesses?
and what will happen to current 5.6 installations - will they still need to
buy additional client access licences or will you publish a licence key (a
la internet key) which opens the server to unlimited accesses?

I'm not big enough to be a VAR but I have several 5.6 installations which
are on the upper limit of their client licence accesses. Do I advise them
that waiting and going version 6 will reduce their cost of expansion?
