pcAnywhere 12.5 Licensing - Host vs. Host/Remote
Back in April I asked some questions and got good answers but in retrospect I realize I should also have asked the following:
Does the pcAnywhere Gateway act, from a license standpoint, as either a host or remote?
I'm trying to confirm whether I need two Host+Remote licenses or just one of that and one host-only license. Here's my scenario:
My PC will be a Remote, conencting into a customer server through the Internet. Inside their network, all the PC's will have Host-only copies/licenses installed. Now, if I Remote into the server, I'm connecting to the Host on that server so that's one Host+Remote license so far. If I then open pcAnywhere on the server, pick a host from the list and connect, I'm now also acting as a Remote going from the server to some PC on the network so that's two Host+Remote licenses required. This creates lag of course since there are really two connections in play but I'm just describing the concept.
However if I install the pcAnywhere Gateway on the server, and use my PC to go directly via that to one of the internal hosts, then would I only need a single Host+Remote license and then just have host-only licenses for those internal PC's?
I'm sure there's a shorter way to pose this question, sorry for the long-windedness!
