Hi,

Remote desktop service is old name and it is for single user connection so on normal pc

Terminal Services is exactly what you need.

Is the OS which you using is 2008 or 2008R2?
I am sure that in 2008R2  Terminal service is replaced as remote desktop service.

Check the below link formore information..

Hi,

CAL is universal. Just install License Server and add licenses to it and then configure the server in Terminal service.

But usually the CAL-s are selling package by 5.
