There is a utility that your BP can run for you, in fact you should be able
to run it yourself. Called DSPESTUSR and it will tell you the number of
concurrent users currently running on your existing machine, and therefore
the number you would need to purchase. Run it a few times to get a good
idea. It comes in a *SAVF, you FTP the *SAVF to your system, Restore the
library and run the command. Its only takes a few seconds to run.

Does a Access for the web 5250 user count as an 'interactive' user on
Everyone that authenticates against IBM i counts as an user. It does
not matter if that user uses 5250, an IBM i user profile, or another
user profile provided e.G. by the application (can be typical for web
applications like a content management system). Licensing is currently
based on concurrent use. Licensing is not enforced by technology.
If you have external users (partners, customers, or any other users).
you can purchase an external connector license for a flat fee.
Internal users must always be licensed on a concurrent access basis.
There is one situation that is rather unclear: automated access (e.G.
by batchjobs from other systems).
