    cheers, my understanding of MS terminal server licensing is that to use MSOffice, every machine that connects must have a valid Office license, thus purchasing one for every student we'd be covered. Can anyone clarify?

    The 28 students are the ones that we have issued with a laptop for the duration of their studies. It belongs to us, but as I understand the rules (errr) because we want to allow them to purchase it at the end of the course without having to remove all the software. It was not a typo it really is 28 not 280, or 2800 students. They're "special", although I think one or two have left since August.. meh!

    As I understood the TS\RDS licenses, because you're only running the software within you servers on site (even though they can access it remotely) you don't have to count the students. Check with your retailers... or ask the new Microsoft man, who's name I can't remember.

    I'm fairly certain that isn't the case post office 2000, otherwise we could just sell online access and MS would loose on their cashcow.
    I'll start a new thread and see if I get any response

    I think that's sort of right with the new EEES due to the cals you recive if you go for the enterpirse cals you get a lot of Forefront productors one is the remote access setup so I would check with MS before you buy it.

    I think this might be covered under the software assurance because they were school laptops it be worth a check as well.
