    does the indie version support networking?
    is there a kind of server included or how does this work?

    Yes it does. In the same way as the Pro version, at least the non-iPhone one.

    You might want to take a look at the Unity License Comparison to get some more information about this

    Take a look here :

    Hope that helps.

    Unity provides networking capabilities. There is a "master server" which is available, but this is for establishing connections between games. You would have to write the server-side logic (to process client requests, etc).

    You can use middleware with indie license, such as SmartFoxServer. That'll help with the connections, synchronizations, chat, etc.
