Purchasing additional Windows Terminal Services Client Access Licenses

We currently have Windows Server 2000 with 2 Clien Access Licenses.  We wish to bring more users onto the server to use Terminal Services.  How do we purchase additional CALs for TS and for how much?  Please do not point me to Microsoft.com.

Thanks very much!

Congratulations for wanting to be licensed legitimately! At some point, you should talk to a knowledgeable vendor about the whole licensing thing--and look at the big picture.  If, however, you just want to buy these specfic licenses right now, to take care of this problem, check out ebargainsoftware.com  They have Terminal Services cals in packages of 5 or 20 with decent pricing.  

good luck.

mbroad02,

I wasn't being sarcastic, and did not intend for my post to be interpreted as such. Many folks post here looking for ways to circuvent licensing requirements, corporate security policies, etc.   A longer in-depth disucssion of licensing would most likely be helpful and useful for many folks in this forum. However, such a discussion is difficult and complex, needing to take into account each individual's situation.  This isn't the right place to do it.  

I do understand the need to solve an immediate problem or issue and wanted to provide assistance where I could, so rather than dodge your question because it concerned licensing, I provided a short answer, with a brief disclaimer. When an answer is posted, it's not just for the author of the question; it's for every user who later views it, too.
