    licence help

    hi there we have a a server which we have citrix presentation server on which i have 25 licences on for my staff to use at home. but as the server is sat doing nothing all day i reuse it as a terminal server which was working so well i got carried away and now hava most of my old crappy machines converted to thin clients. The problem that i have is that because i only have 25 citrix licences i can't connect any more than 25 users via rdp ?? which seems a little weird that citrix can control this? is there away around it? i'm aware i will need another server soon enough but have to have a tempoary solution in place by monday.
    i have considered stopping the citrix services (or uninstalling for now).

    This depends on how many TS Cals do you have. If you have more than 25 TS Cals, you could uninstall Citrix and just use WTS with RDP instead.

    Unfortunately AFAIK there is no way round this, the Citrix licensing model will refuse to allow additional client connections even over RDP.

    sorry forgot to add tscals are notional arn't they so if i need any more i can order them and that would cover me until they arrive, ie they don't get installed at terminal server (do they?)

    You must install TS CALs on your Domains TS Licensing Server. You cannot use more licenses than are installed on said server.
