CAL's on TS (2008 R2)

Hi guys
Does Windows 2008 R2 requires CAL's (files, not licenses) in order to run, or does it use the famous "trust system', which relays on the assumption that you've purchased the CAL'c through volume license?

Thx

If you set up Remote Desktop Services server, then yes, you need CALs and RD Licensing server within your network. Without that you will have only 120-days trial period. After that time you won't be able to use RD Services until you purchase and activate RDS CALs

Regards,
