Using software from Windows servers

Hi experts,

I have both Win 2000 and 2003 servers in my department. and clients with Win XP and 2000

i would like to learn if it is possible to install some software on a server and let the users use if from there.
software such as Pagemaker or Photoshop.

I can specify the number of licenses i have and same number of users will be allowed to use it at the same time.

thanks

You can only use that by running terminal Services on the Servers and require their own licenses, along with the software licenses (for Pagemaker and Photoshop) and the CAL (Client Access Licenses) to connect to the Win Servers, you would also need the licenses for Terminal Services , if you don't have them you can still use the 2 remote desktop connections for administration purposes only.

thanks for the links,

how many licenses do i need for a software that i am going to install on a Terminal server?

ex, Photoshop and Pagamaker again..

i understand that i will need Terminal server CAL device or user licenses, but i am not sure about if i can let use many users with one license of Pagamaker on my Terminal server

thanks,

No you can't... You'll have to check with adobe, but they will require one license per user or per machine.
The only good news i can give you is that win2000 and winxp connecting to win2000 terminal server don't require TS license, they do with 2003.

Here you can check a similar situation:
