I have a dedicated Windows Server 2003 R2 hosted by a 3rd Party.
I wish to configure it so clients can log on and use my software via Terminal Services. I have contacted the hosting company who tell me I need to purchase additional CAL's as I only have the two standard administrator CAL's.
So far this all seems pretty simple. I went to Microsoft to educate myself on the Licensing model: http://www.microsoft.com/windows
So, I need to purchase some TS CAL Licenses for windows 2003 Standard edition.
This is where the confusion starts.Sites like ebuyer and Dabs, sell CALs but these are mainly OEM cals, now presumably these are no good for me as my Server has a non OEM version of windows.
The more sites I visit the more conflicting information I come across so please can some one answer the following:
Do my CALs need to Non OEM or will OEM be ok?
Do my CAL's need to be specific CAL's for TS or will ordinary Windows (user/device) CALs work?
How much should I be paying per CAL, from what I have seen the prices vary from £20 to £120 each?
Some links to reputable sites would be helpful.
