    Hello,

    I have read that Windows Server 2008 Foundation Edition has a 15-user
    limitation.

    How is IIS affected by this? For example, if I'm hosting a simple PUBLIC
    (anonymous) website on this server, can only 15 people access the website
    simultaneously? If 5 users are logged into the LAN, would only 10 people be
    able to access the website simultaneously?

    Or... is IIS not affected by this at all?

    Thanks!

  2. Hello Tyler,

    IIS doesn't need additional licenses as far as i know.

  4. Hello Tyler,

    Never heard about, as in normal server version when IIS is used. How many
    licenses should you buy, to host a website where millions of people have
    access over the internet?

    The 15 user limit belongs to direct access within the server and AD for users/computers.

    Best regards
