[FX.php List] [OFF] IWP proposed as alternative to buying FMP license

Hi Folks,

Help me out with this one.

A rather "frugal" client presently accesses an FMP solution with a 
single copy of FMP 9 client. I serve the file from FMSA 8 remotely to 
make remote development easier. The client now needs to add another 
user.  They tried to use two installations of the same FMP license 
with epected results. Rather than buy another copy of FMP, the client 
wants to follow FMI's suggestion that the file be served up using 
IWP....as an alternative to buying a second FMP license. (!)

I'm not running IWP on my FMSA 8, nor do I intended to.

However, I need to respond back to the client to tell them why it is 
not a good substitute...sort of why a screwdriver is not a good 
substitute for a hammer, although it can be done.

Any suggestions?
