I think you can do more and easier with "normal" version of InDesign - Server version is very hard to use in many cases - for example - no selection ...
Thank you, Robert. But it is a legal question (and for the customer a financial).
well, i'm no expert, and i understand the licensing policy of ID Server is really complicated. I believe that one rulw o' thumb is that if alle the users of your system also use either InDesign or InCopy, it's permitted to deploy a stand-alone InDesign as a server. If 70% or more of the users have InDesign, and you want the stability and speed of the server version, you could go and get the 'entry' license. There's also a corporate license for use within the same firewall thats 3 times the cost of the entry, and if you want to make your service available to the general public, it will cost you even more.
But, as i said, i'm no expert and certainly not an adobe sales rep, and it's probably best you ask someone at Adobe to be sure.
Thank you, James. Now I hear that it is also dependent on wether users are outside the firewall. (Which would be the case with my customer.) But still no definitive answer. And is there really a speed advantage with the server or a stability advantage?
