The Basic Edition license allows you to share your database with up to 2 remote users and has basic hotspot functionality.

The Standard Edition license lets you set up roles which controls access to your libraries:

and users which allows you to define different logins and assign roles to each user.

You can also set up a self-signed certificate to encrypt your connections using SSL for improved security.

If you’re concerned that your users may overload your machine with their search requests, you can define a limit to the number of result rows returned.

If this limit is reached when your users perform a search, a message so that they are aware that the search results have been truncated.
