Microsoft don't make it easy do they!
We are looking at implementing the new Forefront suite of tools\applications.
So far we have managed to work out
Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) - Licensed like ISA2006, per processor in server
Forefront Web Filtering - Licensed on an employee equivalent CAL basis
Forefront Protection Suite (Anti Virus) - HELP!!! I have heard conflicting stories.
Its clear that the client end needs to have CAL's, there is also a Forefront Management Console (Same as McAfee EPo).
I have been told you need to buy the same amount of CAL's for that also, this doesnt seem right, surely you'd just buy 300 Client CALS and 1 or 2 Management CAL's for the server(s) ?
MS Licensing, especially around monthly subscription items can be fraught with complications...but I do have an answer to this for you.
You only need 1 Forefront Client Manager per network (typically, one can support up to 10,000 users) so would purchase 12 x part number (as it's monthly) per year. There is no need to match the number of Forefront CALs you have.
Hope that helps :-)
