QUESTION

Can scClient transfer more than one file at a time?

ANSWER

Yes.

The Accelerate module is licensed per EFT server (or clustered node) as flat, single license fee, and on the number of concurrent scClient sessions on a per client access license (CAL) basis.

  • The EFT server Accelerate license fee unlocks the ability to connect and authenticate with the scClient utility.
  • Each authenticated scClient can consume anywhere between (1) to six (6) sessions, depending on how many files are being transferred in parallel.
  • Customers should purchase the number of licenses that matches the number of concurrent transfers desired, irrespective of the number of scClients in use at any given moment.
  • For clustered environments, each node is licensed independently, as licenses are not shared between nodes in the cluster (more below).
