  • On my Windows 7 Ultimate laptop the license terms indicate 20 connections. Go to Start > Run and type winver then click on Microsoft Software License Terms and scroll down to Section 3 f. - Device Connections.

  • Unfortunatly that part in Windiws 7 Enteprise is very "poor". Actulay under licence termsn is only one or two sentences (general staff) and that is it.

  • Windows 7 Professional also allows 20 concurrent connections.

    Does anyone have a copy of Windows 7 Home Premium that could check the allowance for that edition?
