More informations about this product

Description

Windows Remote Desktop Services is a technology that lets users remotely execute applications on Windows Server. This can be done from a wide range of devices over virtually any type of network connection. Clients are available for a variety of operating systems and can be downloaded from Microsoft's website. A Windows Remote Desktop Services client access license (CAL) is required for each device or user accessing Windows Remote Desktop Services.

This donation provides one user CAL. A user CAL authorizes a user to access Windows Remote Desktop Services from any device. An example would be when an employee accesses the server from a computer at work and another at home. Device CALs for licensing computers and external connector licenses (ECLs) for licensing a significant number of external users are also available. Please note that an organization with a Windows Remote Desktop Services CAL still has to acquire a Windows Server CAL for each device or user accessing Windows Server.

Additional Information

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.

For additional information about the available editions of Windows Server and the server and client licensing requirements, see the Guide to Windows Server Editions and Licensing.
