mikesjn,
from above
A per server CAL does not license a specific PC; it simply licenses connections and is only available for Windows Server .This means the customer need only buy enough CALs to cover the maximum anticipated number of connections at any one time. However, a per server CAL only licenses access to a single server and more CALs would be required if extra servers are added to the network Per server is generally more economical when employees only need access to a server occasionally and for internet servers, bulletin board servers and other special-use servers, such as those running Remote Access Service
