CAL is  based on client access license which is two type per client and device.
1. this you can use for small company .
 e.g.  device means for machine which shared and many user can access


there are no restriction for client access. no restriction how many client are accessing.

Normally CALs coming with 5  Packs, which means;

5 server connections which has 5 different SQL users can connect to the DB server at once ?
5 server which has unique SQL user can connect to the DB server at once ?

or above two scenarios are possible ?? please explain ?
