Licensing

To work with Print&Share on a server, you will need a server license of Print&Share. A base server license is needed with optionally additional userlicense packs.

When you have Citrix with Provisioning Services you need a special key, contact support.


You can use the same Print&Share executable (.exe/.msi) for a client installation or a server installation. It is the license that determines the version.

The 30-day trial of Print&Share works as a desktop version, therefor only one user will be able to use it on the server until activated.


Windows Terminal Server (TS) / Windows Server Remote Desktop Services (RDS)

A server license of Print&Share is required to use Print&Share on a Windows Server with Terminal Services or Remote Desktop Services.


Every client or user who logs in to the server via TS or RDS has its own desktop on the server. This means that each client will have their own Print&Share running on their desktop on the server. Per user session a single Print&Share instance can be opened.
