ASA5505 user license - running in transparent mode

If you run an ASA5505 in transparent mode, will a 10-user license restrict the firewall in any way?

Re: ASA5505 user license - running in transparent mode

Thanks. I knew that there was a ten-user license but didn't know if transparent mode would utilize licensing differently than in a regular firewall mode. I was finally able to speak to a knowledgeable Cisco SE who said regardless of whether it was transparent mode or acting as a regular firewall, it still requires proper licensing. MAC addresses are counted in the licensing so if you had nine users but two print servers, would would not be able to use a 10-user license.
