An External Connector grants access to the server by an unlimited number of external users such as business partners, suppliers, customers, retirees, and alumni. Basically, an external user is a person who is not an employee or similar personnel of the company, such as a business partner or customer. With this license you do not need to buy individual CALs. It is licensed per server.
