You want to do a per-seat licensing. The licencing is not a
but a per-user/machine. For example, if you have RadiusNT/Mailsite on
the same machine, then thats one seat. Otherwise if they are on two
different machines, thats two seats. Each machine connecting to SQL
requires a license/seat, in per-seat licensing.
