Terminal Server Licensing - XP home



Running Win2k Terminal Server in a 2003 AD domain. The Terminal License
server is a DC using User Cals. XP and 2K machines access fine however
client XP Home machines receive "Remote computer disconnected the session
because of an error in the licensing protocol". i have gone through all
troubleshooting articles on Technet in regaurds to checking conenctivity with
License server all is fine. One thing i did notice is that when i tried a XP
Home machine it was issued a Temp Device Cal even though i have User Cals are

any help would be appreciated.


Windows 2000 terminal server DOES NOT use Per-User TS CALs.
You need to have Per Device TS CALs available on your ts licensing

Your XP Pro and Win2k machines are issued free TS CALs that
allow them to connect to a Win2k TS server. XP Home, Win9x, Mac,
etc., require a purchased Per Device TS CAL to connect to a Win2k
TS server.
