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!
