Licensing Requirements

The Remote Desktop Services role enables devices to connect to virtual desktops, RemoteApp programs, and session-based desktops. With Remote Desktop Services, devices can access remote connections from within a corporate network or from the Internet.

Once the licensing grace period is passed, you must have a license for each connecting user or device to connect to an RD Session Host server. You'll also need to install an RD Licensing server. You can install the RD Licensing role service on the same server the service isn't very demanding or on a separate server.

You'll need to purchase RDS Client Access Licenses (CALs) and install them on the RD Licensing server. These RDS CALs are tied to the server, but RDS lets you move them to new hardware if needed. Remember that RDS supports both per-user and per-device licensing. The model you choose should depend on whether you have more users or computers. RDS does not have concurrent-user licensing, and the licenses you choose must match the mode for which you configure the RD Session Host server.

RemoteFX for WAN: Delivers a number of technical improvements that enhance the user experience when connecting over wide area networks. This is especially important for people connecting from dispersed locations such as branch offices, homes, or hotels with low-bandwidth connections

Hyper-V Replica: Provides a storage-agnostic and workload-agnostic solution that replicates efficiently, periodically, and asynchronously over networks based on Internet Protocol, typically to a remote site

    Nice, I mean Everything....

    Good support, nice way of assist, and quality products.

    Exactly as described

    Bought an RDS Cal and a Base CAL for server 2012. You can't even buy these from Microsoft directly anymore since you normally have to buy the 2016 version with downgrade rights. TTT takes care of that for you and you get your product fast, with digital delivery, instead of being mailed a code in a box, just to have to do the downgrade yourself. Much simpler this way. Very satisfied, will definitely use them again.

    Windows Server RDP license

    As an occasional server administrator, I'm not able to keep up with Microsoft's changes to their licensing model. Trusted Tech Team took the guess work out of the process, got me the license I needed delivered electronically within a day, and even had a installation guide that pointed me to a registry key that I needed to delete. I will shop again - Thanks!
