2003, as per my knowledge,

Windows Server 2003

- Server license for each machine
- Cals for each employee
- Cals for each non-employee or an External Connector per machine if this is
exposed to non-employees

SQL

- Server license & Cals for each user if only available to named users
- Per-CPU license if available to unnamed users (e.g. a public site)

SPS

- Server license for each machine
- Cals for each employee
- Cals for each non-employee or an External Connector per machine if this is
exposed to non-employees


2010

Thanks.
What I need to know is if there's a way to know how many number of CALs were bought / included on the sharepoint package. I have just inherited the sharepoint administration and there was no documentation about the licenses.  :(
