Question about SSL VPN licenses for NSA 2400 UTM

Hello,

Can somebody please shed some light on this ? It seems that licensing options when it comes to Sonicwall appliances can become a little confusing. I'm considering purchasing Sonicwall NSA 2400 UTM appliance. I was under impression that this appiance can support more then 25 concurrent SSL VPN users. However I hear different stories and am a little confused now. We will probably be ok with 25 SSL VPN users for now, but will need more in the future, so 30 - 35 should do it for us. However it seems that NSA 2400 can not have more the 25 concurrent SSL VPN users .. Is that correct ? Should I be looking at a different appliance ?
We have 90 - 100 users and NSA 2400 sounded like a great option for our needs...

That right, http://www.sonicwall.com/downloads/DS_NSA_Series_US.pdf

You'll probably have to look at one of their SSL VPN appliances.  However, do you really think you'll have 25 concurrent users utilizing the SSL VPN capabilities of the NSA?

More then likely it will be 20 users on average however on days with bad weather I expect this number to increase to or over 25. Is there a way to perhaps reserve 25 licenses to SSL VPN and anybody extra to rollover to PPTP?
Then you'll want to look at one of their ssl-vpn appliances or utilize the GVC which you can add licenses, up to 250.  ssl-vpn clients are cleaner, but if investing in the separate appliance isn't in your budget then the GVC would be best.  You could have some use the ssl-vpn and when you go over 25, use the GVC client.
I think i will compare the larger NSA series appliance that can suppport more then 25 SSL VPN tunnels vs NSA 2400 and a SSL VPN appliance. I guess if the larger appliance does basically provide the same options and then some, it probably just comes down to cost. I just don't want it to be an overkill for under 100 users, although on an another hand beefy is good...
