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 distributable, run it with the '/?' parameter for help.
Bitvise SSH Server
When you purchase your Bitvise SSH Server licenses, you will get an activation code which can be passed to the SSH server installer in unattended installation. If you install Bitvise SSH Server this way, your installations will thus be pre-activated and immediately ready upon installation.
Bitvise SSH Client
The Bitvise SSH Client installer does not currently take a license code parameter, but the SSH client will work with full functionality regardless of whether a license code has been applied. There is no technical restriction preventing you from deploying Bitvise SSH Client widely without a license code. However, you do still need to purchase an appropriate type and number of licenses.
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 connected buildings, as long as these installations are operated by the organization that holds the license. A single Site License cannot be used for installations in geographically separate locations.
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 includes the right for the software to be used by affiliates, franchises, agents, or contractors associated with the license holder, whether or not directly owned by the license holder, as long as such use is performed within the scope of doing business for, and on behalf of, the license holder. 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.
