When used in combination with a Windows Server client access license (CAL), a Windows MultiPoint Server device CAL permits one device (typically a user station) to access MultiPoint Server.
This donation provides one Windows MultiPoint Server device CAL. It does not include a Windows Server CAL.
A Windows MultiPoint Server CAL pack for one station is also available through TechSoup. The pack includes a MultiPoint Server CAL and a Windows Server CAL, both licensed per device (a user station).
Windows MultiPoint Server is a special version of the Windows Server operating system that allows multiple users to simultaneously share one computer. Each user station that connects to MultiPoint Server must have both a MultiPoint Server CAL and a Windows Server CAL. If the host computer is used as a user station and not just for administration, organizations must acquire both a MultiPoint Server CAL and a Windows Server CAL for it as well.
MultiPoint Server user CALs, as opposed to device CALs, are not available through TechSoup. This kind of licensing would be more costly in a typical MultiPoint Server setup than licensing per device. For example, a setup with 10 user stations would require just 10 device CALs for any number of users. If licensed per user, the same setup would require each user to have a separate license.
This license does not require media, license keys, or setup codes.
CALs, ECLs, and management licenses (MLs) offered through TechSoup are always for the currently offered version of the server software. However, these licenses can also be used with earlier versions of the server software.
