I have a free license,only using 3 of the 10. Today I was talking with a new client, they have a free license as well only using 6.

Can I use my viewer with my license to access one of his hosts that he accesses with his viewer and his license.

We are both on the latest version.

Hello Mike,

Yes, you can. Starting version 6.1 the license code is applied on the Viewer side only. The Host actually doesn't care who connects to it.

Let me give you an example. A flying duck can be shot at by multiple hunters, and different hunters can have a license to shoot a different number of ducks each. Their license doesn't tell what specific ducks they can shoot, it only sets the total limit. Also, the same duck can be simultaneously shot by multiple hunters.

So the duck is a Host, hunters are Viewers, however stupid this example might sound. :)

That is, "free" hunters have a 10-duck license each. But there are also hunters who purchase licenses to shoot a lot more ducks than that :)
