Licensing question one: How many user cals are needed and how many TS cals are needed to implement a terminal server in the follow setup.
1 - windows 2000 server serving files and printing (already established)
1 - windows 2008 server running terminal services (application mode) (to be built)
20 - in-house users (accessing files shared by w2k) (already own 30 cals)
10 - remote users for accessing application installed on the 2008 box (to be purchased)
Because users are accessing an application on the win2003 server but files on the win2000 server are win2003 cals needed?
Which would I need:
a) 30 windows 2000 cals + 10 ts cals
b) 20 windows 2000 cals + 10 win2008 cals and 10 ts cals
c) 30 win2008 cals and 10 ts cals
Second question, from my understanding XP comes with a built in TS cal for access remote servers. Does this only apply to accessing a win2000 terminal server or any version?
Third question on vpn. If as MS server is doing VPN authentication are there additional licenses need specifically for VPN or do the user CALS cover that?
Fourth question on web site authentication. From what I understand if I use IIS and authenticate (think sharepoint services) I need another special license for that, like a external connector. Is this correct? What if I use a different solution like joomla that use ldap to authenticate users, do I need MS licenses for this?
