Licenses for TS server

This one PHB-type manager wants me to put a server in computer lab. The lab is filled with junk computers that run pretty much all the same stuff. I thought it would be a good idea, maybe, to put all the apps on a W2k server (which I have a spare license for) and let the client TS into it to play.

What sort of licensing issues are there for using TS on a W2K server?

Hi stone5150,

You will need:
1 MS Windows 2000 Server licence
1 MS Windows 2000 Server CAL per PC (assuming per-device CALs)
1 MS Windows 2000 Terminal Services CAL per PC (assuming per-device CALs)

I hope that this helps - let me know if you need any further help.

You also need a license for each app, eg if you put word on the server you need a word license for each concurrent user, so if you have 10 PCs connecting to use word you need 10.

I assumed that these users would be happy with Notepad ;-)
