Hi, just one question, how is Office licensed when used on Terminal Server?
For example, if i want to publish Office apps for 20 users, I have windows
CALS and TS CALS for 20 users, but how is Office licensed? Is it enough to
buy Office for 1 user, or what?
thx

That would be nice, wouldn't it :-)
No, Office is licensed per client. You need one license for every
client that runs Office, be it a local installation or through a TS
session. So the number of users doesn't matter, you have to check
on how many workstations these users will run Office.
Details are here:
