Regarding the new User Licensing: how does FMI know when a user occupying a user connection is "unique"? Can you only create as many user accounts for your solutions as the number of users your licensing covers? Or does each user log-in with a unique user ID each time they access the server (as opposed to each solution)? How can you "reassign" users without breaching the EULA? What's the difference between reassignment and individuals "sharing" a user, the latter of which would appear to breach the EULA?


On the contrary, it's been said that one user accessing in multiple instances actually counts as multiple users. Doesn't this go against the principle of User Licensing?
