I am going to install a remote office and will buy a new sonic wall.  currently we use one that is no longer supported.  I have a windows 2003 server that provides the dhcp for the users.  I am confused by the "nodes" that are supported.  Does this mean concurrent internet connections?  If so, what would happen if one user logged off the internet and and another then logged on to the internet? Would the first be "released"?
How does this work?  I have 14 users, but never more than 10 at the same time will be on the internet.

Normally, yes, that's what it means.  It usually makes sense with the Sonicwalls to just purchase the unlimited amount, though.  IIRC, 10 to 20 is about 250 bucks, and 10 to unlimited is about 300 bucks.  

Sonicwalls are usually pretty quick about releasing the users, but, again, unlimited is pretty much the way to go, at least IMO.
