I believe there is an internet type connector for windows and mssql but it
only applies to people not engaged with the company offering the site. If
they are employees,contractors etc. you must use the appropriate CAL.
I don't know what the ramifications are if you have an independent service
provider sell you the use of this app. You may wish to seek legal advice as
to whether being "arms-length" enables you to use the internet connector.
