Question

Is an ArcSDEConnects license used for ArcGIS, ArcIMS and ArcView 3.x SDE connections?

Answer

ArcGIS and ArcIMS are trusted ArcSDE clients and do not require an ArcSDEConnects license.

Client applications other than these, such as ArcView 3.x, are not considered trusted clients and require an ArcSDEConnects license.
