    Question Windows 2008 Server Student Access Licence

    Does anybody know what a "Windows 2008 Server Student Access Licence" is? Something I saw in a Ramesys brochure but I can't find any info on the web about such a thing.

    I'm fairly sure that it is a Client Access License (CAL) which allows students to make use of features like remote desktop / ts web apps etc.
    Depending on your deployment and other existing license types (external connectors etc) it may or may not be required.

    Student CALs

    On Academic MS licensing programs, there are "Faculty" CALs that cover school owned machines and "Student" CALs that cover machines owned by students. Often used for giving them home access to school resources...it's probably this you saw referenced.

    Cheers

    Indeed - Schools Select includes options on Student CALs.
    Hope this helps

    Student CALs

    They are also available on Schools Agreements.
