NT CAL required for VB6 accessing MTS?

I plan to write an application using VB6, SQL Server 7.0 and MTS 2.0. Will the users using the VB6 application need NT accounts on the server running MTS? We are a Novell shop and very few users actually login to any of our NT servers and don't want to manage NT accounts.

Each of your users will not need. if its a simple application where it depends on MTS Transaction capability, they will not need seperate NT accounts.

Say.. now u create the business services[in VB, and compile to a dll] and you Register it in MTS[Create a package and put the dll inside the MTS package]
Every users who use that dll need not accounts. But set the MTS Packages' Identity to an existing account[right click MTS Package, Identity Tab,Click on This user and give a username password of an existing NT User]

This way MTS will impersonate this user whenever it needs to. there fore you do not need to create an NT account for each user who use ur application.
