Terminal Server Licensing Question

Hi,  I am trying to figure out how many licenses I have available for clients to connect in to my terminal server. This Terminal server is running Windows Server 2000 SP4.  I have attached a screen shot of the the Terminal Server licensing on our SBS Server.  

Thanks for you help!

You have 4 licenses available.  The thing to remember is that every copy of windows that 2000 and on that you buy has a TS license included with it that will allow you to connect to a server without using a license as long as it is the same version of windows as the client.  For example a windows 2000 pro workstation can connect to a windows 2000 ts without using a license.  That is why the existing windows 2000 Server Unlimited is there from my understanding to track how many licenses you are giving out that way from what I understand.

Hey willettmeister, thanks for your response.  I guess I'm a little confused still.  When I double click the existing windows 2000 server it shows a ton of different computer names that have been issed a license.  There is only 1 computer that has been issued a license under the two other licensing modes.


1.  If everyone who is connecting to the Windows 2000 Terminal Server is using windows xp pro, will they use up 1 of the 5 total licenses that is under "Windows 2000 SWrever - Terminal... " or will they fall underneath the unlimited?  It appears as of now they have fallen underneath the unlimited, but I really don't know.

2. When is the Windows 2000 Server - Terminal Services CAL Token(per device) used?

3. When is the Temporary Licesnese for Windows 2000 Server used?

They woudl fall under the unlimited because XP in newer than 2000 so the license included with xp pro would be able to be used for that also.
