It depends on what you need to configure... some options does not come with a license requirement while other have firm requirements.

All nodes need a "CORE_SYSTEM license; or else license annoyance will presented.

Speak with your regional ABB sales or ABB SoFa representative, he or she should be able to provide you with a time limited demo license.

There is no manual explicitly listing what license(s) you need to purchase.

I recommend the Getting Started guide:
System 800xA Installation, Update and Upgrade Getting Started, 2PAA111708-600

You can download it from: http://inside.abb.com/AbbLibrary/downloadcenter

For external access, an ABB account is required. Maybe your regional ABB sales representative can assist with getting an external account registered for you (you may have to purchase some service to be let in)
