Do I really need Windows 2000 Server licensing for WinXP users ...?
For Windows 2000 Server using Per Seat Licensing ...
Users acquire a CAL for each workstation or other device that connects to any licensed server. There are built-in CALs for WindowsXP (is this for Pro only, does it include Home versions?) and WIndows 2000 clients, that do not require licensing.
I only want to use this server for Terminal Services remote logins. All of my remote users use WinXP Pro or WinXP Home.
If, as I understand it, I don't need to buy CALs for use in this application, then when I setup the Windows 2000 server is it correct for me to choose PER SEAT LICENSING and/or do I even install Licensing at alll...?
I'm just trying to be clear on this because I understand if you set up your WIn2K server wrong, the only way to correct it is to completely reinstall the operating system.
