-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 I did have someone from our campus contact an Apple representative before I wrote the OSX module. Here are the conditions, as I understand them.
1. Must be on Apple hardware. No way around this one. 2a) For Apple Snow Leopard (Server) you must have a license for each instance. 2b) For Apple Lion (Client or Server) you can have 3 instances per license per machine. (one real + 2 virtual, or 3 virtual) 3) The other OSX versions cannot be virtualized. I based my work on Apple Snow Leopard(Server). I didn't have a copy of Lion available as it hadn't been released yet. I suspect the scripts I wrote for things like firewall control are SL specific, and may have to be modified for Lion. Just a bit of info, VMware 5 now supports SL Server as an operating system type(Apple hardware). Maybe this link will be helpful. > http://lists.apple.com/archives/Macos-x-server/2011/Jul/msg00205.html Btw, 'time-sharing' really isn't an issue with iRAPP RDP server. It runs on the console, and only one person at a time can be on the console. Hope this helps, __Jim On 2/24/2012 6:37 AM, Mark Gardner wrote: > Thanks for letting me know.
