Only the Server part of Scan Redirector RDP Edition must be licensed. The Workstation part is FREE. One license allows to use the Server part on one computer, multiple licenses must be purchased to use it on multiple computers.
The license allows certain number of simultaneous remote sessions (this mostly applies to Terminal Servers, where several users can be scanning at the same time).
Here are some licensing examples:
- When redirecting a scanner to a virtual machine, you need as much licenses as much virtual machines you have. If your virtual machines are not terminal servers, then it will be enough to purchase licenses with 1 user session.
- When redirecting a scanner to a remote session on Terminal Server, you need as much licenses as much Terminal Servers you have. The number of user sessions depends on how much users will be using scanner redirection.
- When redirecting a scanner between two regular computers, you need to purchase a license only for the computer which will be acting as Remote Desktop server.
