Chapter 8. License

SourceOffSite is licensed on a per user basis (not by concurrent users). If you have three people who use SourceOffSite, you need to purchase three licenses: one license for each of those three people. Each user may install the SourceOffSite Client on multiple machines as needed. The SourceOffSite Server will limit the number of users to the number of licenses purchased.

In order to activate SourceOffSite for operation, you must configure one or more serial numbers on the server-side. These serial numbers are used to tell the Server how many Client licenses you have purchased. For evaluation licenses, the serial number is dynamically generated.

Please see the SourceOffSite license agreement for specific details.
