Subject FB server installation and concurrent users limits on Windows Server

I know that FB as software doesnt have any limit to the users that can access the engine.

I am wondering if is there any “access limit” imposed from a windows system server (like the latest 2008/2012)

that will require to buy extra licenses  


I suppose that If I will install FB server on a window “client machine” for a small network group I will have no limitation about users that can connet to the machine and then to FB engine


What if I will install the engine on a Windows 2012 RX server?

I already know that the license comes with possibility to validate 5 users simultaneously accessing the server and you have to buy extra CAL

If I will not use a DOMAIN and the windows system control about users accessing FB engine would I have no limitation about the number of CLIENTS that will access the FB server engine?


Thank you for the reply
