Double license the connections used with RedBox?

Postby harlanji » 08 Dec 2011, 22:01

Hi, I see that RedBox uses a second connection for A/V:

» Does the RedBox use a second connection for audio/video streaming?
Yes. The RTMP protocol used to communicate with the Red5 server works on port 1935 and its data traffic is separated from the SmartFoxServer 2X protocol.
There are many advantages with this approach, the main one is that you can even dedicate one server machine for the Red5 server, if you have very high a/v traffic.

does this mean that a license only goes 1/2 as far, eg. 250 people * 2 connections = 500? or is it purely an RTMP/Red5 connection that will still allow 500 SFS2X users?

The second connection is towards the Red5 server, so it doesn't affect the SFS connected users count. In other words if you have a 500 Users license, it will allow 500 users to connect, not 250.
