Upgreading in 2014, I am trying to support a 20 users with filemaker pro server 13 and users with the full client FMP, they need to update server software and hardware.

 

The client is evaluating using a Mac Mini Server or a Windows Server. The question relates to filemaker pro clients connecting to the databases on a Windows server. They have been told they will need a CAL, since this is considered "file sharing" for each workstation/user connecting to the Windows Server. Of course this drives the cost way up verses the Mac Mini that doesnt charge anything.

 

Can anyone clarify ?
