A server Client Access License (CAL) is a license that gives users and devices the legal right to access Microsoft server software installed on a server.
When you sell a copy of Windows Server, the customer will receive a server license permitting installation of the operating system on one computer. A server license by itself does not provide the legal right for others to connect to that computer, whether they work for the company or not. Instead, each user needs a Client Access License (CAL).
Customers will need a CAL for each employee, or each employee device, that accesses the Windows Server installation, but not for anonymous users who access it over the Internet.
Server CALs are cost effective and affordable, allowing customers to pay only for the licensing they need with the option of buying more as their businesses grow.
Windows Server 2012 user and device CALs are no longer included as part of the Windows Server software and must be purchased separately. They can be bought in packs of 1, 5, 10, or 50.
