I'm probably getting too obsessed with this.
... without being authenticated or otherwise individually identified by the server software or through any other means
Anyway, we now know it'll work on Web Server 2008, which doesn't need CALs under any circumstances. So I'm going to put my ePortal on that to avoid any problems.
I've still got the SQL Server CALs to sort out, though.

True who knows lol anyway it will spend more time down than up for outside access with the reliability of the internet at times!

Hi Overworked, would you detail me the fix for getting IIS to work on 2008. Serco have spent over an hour woking on this problem.

Do you mean getting ePortal working on IIS7 on Server 2008? It works well, if you know how.
Serco publish a guide but there's a crucial point they've missed. You have to give the ISAPI-DLL execute permission on each of the virtual directories.
Also, it won't run on 64-bit. Serco spent a couple of hours trying on my server too.
Let me know.

I've spoken to Beardy and issue resolved.
You're right about the bit we've missed, the document is being updated.
The 64 bit server requires a 64bit ISAPI and it is dependant upon architecture, AMD or Intel. This isn't publically available to current schools but if you have installed on a 64bit server and need to get it running in IIS PM me.

SQL 2005 is licensed per Server, regardless of CPUs, a factor I overlooked to my cost...

It can be, but doesn't have to be. Like all Microsoft software, there are an array of licensing methods for it.
