<strong>Remote Desktop Services CAL: What are CALs and when do you need them? </strong><br />If you want to license a Windows server that is going to be used as a terminal server, you will need the following licenses:<ul>
                <li>Windows Server Standard or Windows Server Datacenter</li>
                <li>Windows Server CAL</li>
                <li>Remote Desktop Services CAL</li>
</ul>
 
<div>Just like with other CALs, you can pick between licensing by user or by device for Remote Desktop Services CALs.<br />You will need to define a licence server role on the Windows server you are using for RDS access. Any server downgrade rights applied are automatically transferred to the Licence Server role. These rights define the CALs required.<br />&nbsp;</div>
