  1. Well, I guess that's what I was missing. Thank you!
  2. In a small shop with an NT4 PDC, I've been trying to connect some new machines. The clients are Windows 7 professional, 64-bit. Trying to map a network drive from the PDC fails (invalid username/password), so does trying to join the domain. I've tried user-pass, user/domain-pass, etc., no luck. Finally, I went over to the NT4 server, and took a look in the event log. No reports of any failed logins at all. Now I'm confused. I made sure that the Win7 clients have the client for Microsoft networks, and that they have file sharing enabled. Just for fun, I even tried with their firewalls turned off. No luck. Is there something I'm missing here?
  3. Thanks for the replies. I'll let them know that they need the RDS cals in addition to regular CALs. The software in question is some insurance software, for some reason they don't want to put another server in the second office, and the software vendor recommended terminal services. No licensing issues with the software. Now to look into bandwidth issues between the offices... each office has something like 512mbps, I need to get prices on more substantial pipes.
  4. I'm trying to help a company out, which has been told by one of their software providers that they should use terminal services in order to allow employees in two different office locations to use the software. I'm trying to wrap my head around the licensing... First, they need a server license, that's a given. They'd need a new server, so we'll say 2008 R2. The CALs are where I'm a bit fuzzy - it seems that RDS CALs are different from regular CALs - is that correct? If so, then for one of their employees to run an application residing on the server, do they need both a regular CAL *and* an RDS CAL? If you guys could point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it.
