The standard Ggate license is for a given number of sessions that can be spread over any number of servers. Complementary products (Gproxy, Gspool, GUFT) are then licensed by server. An extremely flexible alternative is the Ggate Plus license which covers Ggate sessions, and as many copies of complementary products as needed.
