How many RDS CALs come with 2012 Essentials?

We need to log into our server to access a program.  How many licenses to do this come with our new 2012 Essentials server?  Where can we purchase more of them?

Essentials only supports 2 active sessions, no matter how many RDS CALs you own.  And that includes someone if they are logged into the console itself.

It doesn't sound like Essentials is the solution you are looking for.

Essentials doesn't use RDS Cal's and can't support the RDS role other than being a license server
