eportal & Server 2008 CALs
I'm in the process of setting up eportal for external access by staff, and later, parents.
I've just been struck by a thought: We'll need user CALs as ePortal will be hosted on Server 2008. Is this right? Reading the MS pages on Server 2008 licensing, we need CALs for any users who authenticate with a web site, either through Windows or any other technology - like logging on to ePortal. This could get expensive.
The way round it is to host it on Windows Web Server 2008, which doesn't need any CALs. But will ePortal install and run on Windows Web Server?
I'm just downloading the trial Web Server edition now to try it. Does anyone know for certain before I spend time on this?
