Hello, we have VPN-enabled RRAS role on Windows Server 2008 R2 and our users (approx. about 100 users) needs access to our site -especially to one application server with 3rd party app. My question is : needs users some special CAL for VPN access?

Sure, we have CAL's to "user" and "device" to accomplish licence conditions, but I don't know if I need separate CAL's for VPN access.

Thanks all.
