Question -

The network we're setting up is going to have the following:
1x windows 2003 domain controller
1x windows 2003 terminal server (with 25 user CALs)
1x SQL server (with 25 user CALs)
1x exchange server (with 25 user CALs)

QUESTION - with regards the windows CALs... is it possible to use device CALs, because only 3 computers will be connecting to it (the other 3 servers -exchange, sql, and terminal).  All clients will connect via the internet to the terminal server.  

there are 25 users.

would that work?  can we have 25 people using the terminal server, and just get away with a device CAL for it?
