GO-Global makes no use of any WTS functionality and does not require WTS to be installed. You will need to obtain standard Windows Server CALs.

OK, but anyway, even if the Go Global technology is not using the RDP protocol or the Terminal Services component in Windows server editions, do I still need to buy a TS CAL from Microsoft ? You say that, legally, we need to buy Windows CAL's, my question if we need to buy TS CAL's too. I'm asking this precise question as I took the time to look over the Windows 2003 end user licence agreement and I found this :

In addition to a Windows CAL, if you wish to conduct a Windows Session, you must acquire a TS CAL for each User or Device. A ”Windows Session” means a session during which Server Software hosts a graphical user interface on a Device (whether via the TS component of the Server Software or via other technology).

As you can see, the definition of what is a Windows session is quite generic, and MS says clearely that even if we use another technology than Terminal Services (like the RXP protcol you developed) we still need to buy per user or per device TS CAL's.

You see, I am conducting a study for my company to see if there is a better/cheaper alternative to Terminal Services, and Go Global seems to be the only alternative to Terminal Services, but I need to be 100% sure about this legal aspect too ...

Dear,
Can you please inform me as well about the licensing? I'm in the process of renewing our open licencing subscription and i wonder if i need to renew the 60 TS CAL's as well. We are no longer using TS thanks to go-global...

Thank you.
