CAL and costs

P: n/a
Hi @all.

I have a question regarding CALs (Client Access Licenses) and ASP.NET.
In some articles I have read, that you need CALs depending on the
number of clients you want to serve (autenthicate). So I am a little
bit confused. Do I really need a CAL for every (authenticated) user in
my ASP.NET application.

What do I "lose" when I do not use (buy) ACLs?

What can I do "without" ACLs?

I hope that this is the right NG to ask.

Thanks for every response.

What server product are you referring to? ASP.NET itself doesn't need any
CALs.

Sorry, I forgot.

I am referring to IIS and let?s say Windows Server 2003.

But why are you asking, is there a difference?

Thanks.

I mean what server product do you think requires CAL? Asp.Net doesn't need
one.

Okay, let?s say it in another way.

I am not interested in special in CALs, but I want to know which costs
can appear, when I use ASP.NET (or for the on who uses it). Sometimes
ago I heared about CALs depending on the number of users. So I wanted
to know what things I have to pay attention in connection with
developing ASP.NET applications (hidden costs like "per user"-costs).

So, are there "hidden" costs? When do I have to worry about CALs? What
are the costs for hosting an ASP.NET application (in the sense of
Licenses and so on).

Thanks for any response.

here is some info:
To better understand CALs and SSL connection counting, review the following
scenarios:

Thanks for your (long) response. You really cleared it up for me.

Well, I think it does help if you know that other developers never came
across your question. This means that the question is likely irrelevant in a
general case. If you know particular scenarios where the question is
relevant, that is great, no doubt.
