RDS CALs require for Graphon? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If we install Graphon on Windows Server should we require  RDS CALs for the users?

    But we have Win Server CALs for the users.

  • Hi,

    According to this article below,

    “There are two basic scenarios which trigger the requirement for an RDS CAL.

    • Your users or devices directly or indirectly access any of the RDS product functionality, and/or
    • Your users of devices directly or indirectly interact with the graphical user interface of the server software using RDS functionality or other third party technology (e.g. Citrix, GraphOn, 2X to name a few)”

    Therefore, RDS CALs are required for your users.
