    Hello,

    I am working in TCS. My company has got their windows server and we are setting up an app. For this I required IIS URL ReWrite module. I need to raise service request to get this installed.  But the service team said it cannot be approved due to vendor site terms for commerical usage. Here are my questions

    Is it not suitable to use this software in production IIS?

    Should I buy a special commercial license for this software?

    Please let me know.

    Your service team seems to get everything wrong. The licensing terms are clear in,

    https://www.iis.net/community/files/EULA/URL_REWRITE_RTW.html

    In short, "Microsoft Corporation (or based on where you live, one of its affiliates) licenses this supplement to you. If you are licensed to use Microsoft Windows software (for which this supplement is applicable) (the “software”), you may use this supplement. You may not use it if you do not have a license for the software. You may use this supplement with each validly licensed copy of the software."

    Your usage internally does not need to care about "Distributable Code" section in general, but you can talk to a lawyer to be certain.
