Operating your own BSCW server

You may operate your own BSCW server as an extension of a suitable Web server running on a Unix, Linux, or Windows (Windows 7/2008/Vista/2003/XP) platform.

The BSCW server software is distributed by OrbiTeam Software GmbH & Co. KG, Bonn, Germany, under licence from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT).

You may download the BSCW server software (http://www.bscw.de/english/download.html) and use it free of charge for a 90 day evaluation period. Starting with the 91st day, usage of your own BSCW server requires a licence. The distribution of BSCW licences is handled by OrbiTeam Software GmbH & Co. KG.

Schools and universities may apply for royalty free licences for educational purposes. Other licensees have to pay a licence fee for use of BSCW beyond the evaluation period. Please contact license@orbiteam.de if you need further information regarding the licensing proce­dure.
