    Do I need to get the web edition to be able to run the website from? I have

    Hello,

    This website shows the differences:

    You do not need the Web Edition to run websites. All editions of Windows
    Server 2003 includes IIS.

    Thank you, that straightened that out.

    Now, I have another confusing dilema. I have 30 users that use a database
    on a server that also authenticates their username and password (all over a
    WAN). 23 of those users are using a single application on a Terminal
    server. The terminal server has 12 different printer definitions loaded on
    it. What kind of licensing requirements are there going to be?

    Do I need 30 user cals on the server that has the database on it?
    Do I need 23 user cals on the Terminal server also?
    Do I need 12 device cals on the Terminal server for the printers?

    This licensing thing is confusing. I am reading about it, but it is not
    sinking in and I don't want to get to many licenses and not need them, or
    (yikes) not get enough!!

    Thank you.

    Gale
