Server / Client information

Post by Sylvain Martel » Mon May 01, 2006 11:34 am


we're thinking, where I work, to purchase a Source Code Control software.
I've been looking since last week for some specific information on if we need to buy a license server or if we can work only with client.

I've halready read that we can have acess to our file from the internet with the server. But for us, this is really not necessary because we don't grant that type of access.

So, I'd like to know what are the advantages and disadvantages to work without server, if it is possible ?

Thank you

Vault does not requires a license for the server itself - all licenses are client licenses, so the server is in essence, free.

However, you still need to install the server, as the clients won't work without it, regardlesss of whether you use the internet capability or not.
