Added lines 5-7:
Yes! Often times customers ask about installing PaperCut onto multiple print servers, either as a production/development setup or as a functional solution for tracking across multiple print servers.
Either way, you'll be covered by your PaperCut license.

Added lines 10-14:

In cases where you need to install multiple standalone application servers, you can apply for an enterprise wide license which allows such installations.  You can read more about that license along with the requirements here:

Changed lines 6-7 from:
A: PaperCut can be installed on as many servers as required.  As a company we have decided against ''per server'' licenses as this approach penalizes sites with multiple existing print servers, and forces them to restructure all their print servers.  This also encourages sites to overload their servers.  PaperCut is instead licensed ''per user'' as we feel this better reflects an organizationís budget.

to:
A: PaperCut has excellent support for multiple servers using a primary and secondary server concept.  This involves setting up a single primary PaperCut server, and installing multiple secondary print servers.  The secondary print servers run a small print monitoring service and report their activity back to the primary server.

Configuring secondary print servers is described in the manual here

Q: Can I run PaperCut on multiple servers?

A: '''Licensing Considerations:'''
