    Read the letter, it talks about getting sufficient CALs for students and staff for the free connector. This page/faq is the most confusing of them all though.
    I think i need to get MS to read that as well.


    3.
    You acquire CALs via the Student Option for the same product(s) for all of the students in the same institution, department, or school district.
    What is the student option and does this mean one CAL for each student? I remember one sales rep telling me this.

    Sounds like a fantastic idea. but all we know that MS resellers privately tell schools that the are 'immune' to prosecution from MS lawsuits. It would be too risky for MS to prosecute schools in the long term. Much better if there was a larger (BSF) organisation to sue. besides, the MS resellers get more money by making it up as they go along.

    While digging into this TS asside someone has just insisted that you need an Office CAL for each student not for each device. This is madness surely no one else does this do they?

    The MS license partners handbook clearly states that Office license are per device only! I wonder if suppliers read stuff from MS :P

    From the handbook

    "Office functionality through Terminal Services — When accessing Office through a Windows Server 2003
    (or 2003 R2) Terminal Server, a separate Office license must be acquired for each device."

    Also see this http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...l_services.doc

    Full of lots of horrendous line like "Most retail (full packaged product) and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) licenses for products released in the 2007 release timeframe do not permit network use."

    Does the mean if using remote access technology, the only way to guarantee being legal is buy a license for ever computer on the planet

    Bring on OpenOffice

    Not quite apparently but one for the server and one for the device (so only twice as many as should be required :-)). or do you not need to bother with a licence for the TS as long as the device has a licence. Ow ow ow

    For office on TS, if you don't run it on the server console it doesn't actually need a license, no. Just every client that runs office on the TS. Now if you had multiple TS, each client would still only need the one office license.

    So yes, you would need an office license for every machine ever if you wanted to be fully covered, although this would also allow those machines to use office locally, or on any other TS server :P

    I mentioned this earlier and wanted to provide the answer to where i read about it

    even embracing Linux in this scenario and supplying a Linux version of RDP (they already have one trust me).
    WUDSS has a Java based RDP client in case you want to manage it from a "non Windows" sytem.
