Licensing Multiple Tentacles Per Machine

If I have multiple tentacles on the same machine, does each one count towards an additional license, or is it per machine? What about different types of tentacles, such as polling and a drop-off on the same machine?

    Thanks for getting in touch!

    With regards to multiple tentacles or connection types to a single machine we consider each connection to be a "machine" from a license point of view. So if you have a listening and a polling Tentacle on a single machine that would count as two devices as they are able to perform different tasks simultaneously.

    I hope that all makes sense. Any further questions please ask!
