    Default Licensing Question.

    Here is the story.

    We have a Windows 2003 server running MS SQL on it. We
    created a program in-house to do some internal order
    tracking. This program is web bases and can be used from
    a browser anywhere.

    Our employees will be using this in house app only via the
    web and I am curious as to what licenses I will need.

    IE: Server 2003 User CAL's
    SQL User CAL's

    Since this is a web application and will only be used via
    the web will this fall under "Web Server" If this is the
    case am I wrong for thinking users will not need a CAL of
    any sort? Or would they just need a SQL CAL?

    Any info on this would be great...

    Thanks in advance,

    I believe there is an internet type connector for windows and mssql but it
    only applies to people not engaged with the company offering the site. If
    they are employees,contractors etc. you must use the appropriate CAL.

    I don't know what the ramifications are if you have an independent service
    provider sell you the use of this app. You may wish to seek legal advice as
    to whether being "arms-length" enables you to use the internet connector.

    Ok that makes sense for the SQL part...

    How about for the server. Do I need user CAL's if they
    are accessing this app from the web?

    Thanks in advance...
