Terminal Server Licensing on 2000 SBS

I have a Win2000 SBS and I'm trying to find out how many terminal server licenses it contains.  Where do I find this?  Also, in administrative tools->terminal services licensing, what is the difference between existing windows 2000 license, temporary licenses for existing windows 2000 license, and temporary licenses for windows 2000 terminal services client access licenses.  I have nothing listed in existing windows 2000 license, about 20 listed in temp for existing, and 3 in the last category.

In Windows 2000 Servers, there is no separate TS licensing.  The TS CAL was included with the Desktop Operating System.  So, you have as may TS Licenses as you have SBS CAL's basically.

Unless you are using windows 98, 95 or XP Home, then you would need to purchase a licence

Interesting point re SBS 2000, you can't run it as a terminal server in app mode.  You must have another 2000 server in the environment running TS.  Which leads to my question after searching the OS forum.  Is there a reg twaek that will fool the OS into thinking it is a stadard windows 2000 server and not a SBS 2000 server?

That's not true.  With SBS2000 you CAN run it as a terminal server in app mode.  This is different than with SBS2003 which cannot be run in that manner.

Jeff,

I attempted a SBS2000 in TS app mode and the server would not respond to requests for a remote login.  All services necessary were running.  Checked with the documentation re TS setup on SBS2000 and it calls for another w2k server to run the app mode from.  I will post this in OS section as a new question anyway.  If you have a link outlining the procedure, I would be grateful for the post.

Don't get me wrong... I wouldn't recommend installing TS in Application mode on an SBS2000, and neither does Microsoft.  However, that doesn't mean that it cannot be done... it can.
