CAL for Demand-dial VPN user??

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Nickonthemove, Sep 2, 2005.

  1. I am planning on using a demand-dial VPN to connect 2 of our client's sites.
    I have set this up in practice and see that it requires 2 users setup (1 at
    each end) for the connection.

    Would these users each take up a CAL on these servers?

    TIA

    No.

    For licensing purposes, only physical people (if you're using User CALs) or
    physical workstations (if you're using Device CALs) take up CALs.

    You could have 500 user accounts set up, but if you only ever have 5
    physical people accessing those 500 accounts, then you only need 5 CALs.
