Termail Server Licenses Server 2008 Standard

Hi -

I just want to confirm my beliefs - We just purchased and installed Server 2008 Standard (32 bit) on our server.  The application we are installing requires Remote Desktop for each user.  My understanding is Server 2008 comes with 2 terminal server licenses.  To allow another 3 users I have to purchase 5 more terminal server licenses.  Is that correct and that will allow up to 8 simultaneous users.

Yes, u are right..........it will allow you to allow up to 8 simultaneous users

The 2 licenses are meant for administration and it not for your users.

For 8 users, will you still need to procure the appropriate number of 8 RDS CAL.
