"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You don't need any if you're the admin and you're RDPing for Admin purposes - Remote Administration doesn't require RDS CALs.

If users are connecting then either buy one cal per user or if you have less computers than users then you need device CALs. If your users connect from multiple devices then it is better to buy user CALs
