    SQL Licensing


    I am writing a client program that, for performance reasons, opens two connections
    with a SQL Server 2000 database. My question is simply this: If 20 users
    are working simultaneously (each with their own client program), do they
    need 40 SQL client licenses to legally operate the system? If so, does the
    processor license that Microsoft offers for database driven public internet
    sites provide a way around simply purchasing a grossly large number of licenses?
    Any (legal/correct) details would be much appreciated. Thanx!

    Re: SQL Licensing

    This question is a bit OT here. I suggest that you try the SQL zone or
    better yet, get an authoritative answer from Microsoft; it's their
    license after all.
