Server Licensing

Specs: Win Server 2003, P4 2.8 /512

Installed a new Server with MS server 2003 and have been able to successfully connect to the network over a VPN and then run Remote Desktop Connection on my XP computer to log in to the server from home. Now I get a message box with "Remote Desktop Disconnected" The remote session was disconnected because there are no Terminal Server License Servers available to provide a License. I have read where the license that comes with Server 2003 only lasts 120 days which coincides with when this message appeared. How do I get arround this problem. Do I need to purchase a license for the server and my home computer ? Is it a one of license or is it an annual charge ? If other users need to connect can they connect at the same time or do they need a separate license also ?

you can use the remote admin TS connection, you 2 connections for free, they are used for remote admin purpose, like what your doing. You will have to switch from the application mode to remote admin mode.

Perhaps i'm missing something here but I just enabled remote desktop and that automatically gives you two conncurrent sessions on the server. The only time I mess with TS is when there are sessions which haven't closed properly.

You should only have trouble logging on if there are more than two people connected or you forgot to log off before you closed a connection from a different computer.
