SAP.Net download and licensing info

Hopefully somebody can clarify the following for me,

If I log into and download the SAP.Net connector from the service marketplace:

Can I start using the connector immediately or do I need purchase a license (i.e. NetWeaver developer license)?

A lot of articles I've read on the subject say it's a free download so just wanted to clarify - thanks 😊

    • Hi Simon,

      Jitesh is absolutely right.

      When performing developement with the SAP connector for Microsoft .NET you will need a user to authenticate against the backend system being used.

      The same will also be true if you are using Web Services. The advantage here would be that you would not need to distribute the .NET connector runtime on the client PC's.

      In both cases the endusers that are consuming either RFC function modules or Web Services have to have licensed users.

      If you are an ISV you should have a look at the SDN article:

      Best regards,
