Thanks for finding that. In reading it, it looks like my statement on
1) is incorrect. (I was told that this was needed by my Microsoft
contact a few years ago, but I am running Windows TS 2000 - not 2003.)
The following statement from the article :
"In addition to a server license, a Windows Server 2003 CAL (Windows
CAL) is required. If you want to conduct a Windows session, an
incremental Terminal Server Client Access License (TS CAL) is required
also. A Windows session is defined as a session where the server
software hosts a graphical user interface (GUI) on a device. For Windows
sessions, a TS CAL is required for each user or device."
You will need a CAL and a TS CAL for every device (terminal client).
You cannot, as some suggest, buy one CAL and one TS CAL (for the K12LTSP
server) and hit it from all of the terminals.
