I'm buying an ESA appliance with a support of X users (X mailboxes). I'm wondering how the appliance determines the number of used mailboxes and What could be its behaviour if this number becomes greater than the initial purchased number.
I agree with you Adrian but when I bought my ESA appliance, it was supposed to work with a defined number of user. As an example, for a Blocker, you can get it with a 50, 100 or 200 users support. So I'm wondering when this figure is used by the ESA appliance?
IronPorts are licensed on the number of users for the IPAS, Sophos, McAfee, & VOF. There are no hard limits other than hardware capacity, honesty and legal contracts are the limiting factors. Also licenses are renewed every 1-3 years, so user growth is re-evaluated at that time also. Be honest, about your user growth...growth is a good thing.
Also IronPorts come in different sizes, you won't be able to get 100,000 messages an hour through IPAS, Sophos, McAfee and VOF scan engines on a C100, but given an X1050 you will be pleased with the results :)
We have configured the outside and inside Interface with official ipv6 adresses, set a default route on outside Interface to our router, we also have definied a rule , which also gets hits, to permit tcp from inside Interface to any6.
In Syslog I also se...
