For your staff to connect externally onto your RDS server, you need the following per user:

- RDS CAL (per user or per device)
- Windows CAL

- Potentially Exchange CAL if user has a mailbox
- Potentially Office CAL if the server has Office 20xx installed - irrespective if the user runs it or not.

If you can provide more information about your infrastructure and RDS I can assist further.
