Terminal server licencing.
Posted on 2006-10-25
I have attained a wealth of knowledge in regards to terminal services from you experts as i have been asking questions in regrds to this. My last question is now in regards to the licencing as i am having conflicting stories.
An IT person i spoke to that i only speak to now and again said he had setup a terminal server. He said he did not have to purchase any licences as winows 2000 machines and windows XP machines automatically carry these licences.
I have a SBS 2003, and two 2003 machines. My staff from germany(5 people) will log in remotely into our server to use our database as i am running everything here.
Would i need a licence for the server and not for the workstations> or dont i even need to purchase licenses? I have read many articles but none explain what i am asking. I have been told that i only need these licences if for instance i have mac machines and they need to log onto the serverto use our database which did not really believe.
Basically can i get info of exactly what i need to do with the licencing?
thx in advance
