FM17: Can an User with an Advanced installation connect to a FM Server that is outside of my company's license?

Hello All,

 

I had a user ask me today if they could use their FM Pro Advanced installation to connect to a second server. The FM Server that they wish to connect to is not owned by our company. Before they attempted this, I wanted to make sure that there was nothing in the license agreement that would prevent them from doing this.

 

Are my users limited to connecting to the FileMaker Servers that were purchased alongside our User Licenses?

 

If this is possible, would their instance begin consuming one of the concurrent seats? Would there be any license risk from the external source?

 

Thanks!
