Large Scale Installation
The Bitvise SSH Server and Client installers that are available for download are also fully equipped for large scale deployments. Both installation programs can be run in unattended mode using command-line parameters. After you download the installer, run it with the '/?' parameter for help.
When you purchase a Bitvise SSH Server or Client license, you will get an activation code which can be passed to the respective product installer in unattended installation using the -activationCode="..." parameter. If you install the SSH Server or Client this way, your installations will be pre-activated and ready upon installation.
Large Scale Licensing
The following license types are available:
- Per Installation
Most cost-effective for smaller or dispersed deployments.
- Site License
This type of license is valid for an unlimited number of installations in one building or a group of neighboring buildings. The installations must be operated by the organization that holds the license. A single Site License cannot be used for installations in geographically separate locations, such as in different parts of a city.
- Area License
This type of license is valid for an unlimited number of installations which are all no further than 150 kilometers of straight line distance from one another. That is, they fit within a 75 km radius. The installations must be operated by the organization that holds the license.
Worldwide Internal Use License
This license type is valid for an unlimited number of installations, anywhere in the world, for internal use within a single organization and its directly owned affiliates. This license cannot be used for installations performed by an organization on behalf of its customers or other third parties.
The Worldwide Internal Use License is limited to organizations or subsidiaries with annual revenues consistently under USD 25 billion.
Unlimited Project License
This type of license is valid for an unlimited number of installations, anywhere in the world, as part of a single project that may involve multiple organizations. A specific project unifying the installations has to exist, and needs to have a coherent description. This license cannot be used for installations unrelated to the project for which it was purchased. This license is not limited by revenue.
Large Worldwide Internal and External Use License
This license type is valid for an unlimited number of installations, anywhere in the world, for internal and external use by a single organization.

This license type does not grant the right for the software to be used by independent third parties outside the scope of operations performed on behalf of the license holder.
The Large Worldwide Internal and External Use License is applicable to organizations of any size, including organizations with annual revenues consistently over USD 25 billion.
All license types come with 12 months of free upgrades. Additional years of upgrades can be purchased consecutively at 20% of the license price per year.
