Bij navraag bij Microsoft en enige resources op het web het volgende voor Microsoft Windows 2003 Web Edition.
1) Voor iedere SMB connectie is een CAL nodig zoals bij normale MS server producten.
2) Voor iedere IIS connectie is geen andere licentie nodig als de licentie voor het OS zolang het om IIS verkeer gaat. FTP, HTTP, HTTPS.
Wanneer andere onderdelen gebruikt worden welke wel licenties nodig hebben dan zijn er wel licenties nodig voor bijvoorbeeld SQL Server, Data storage deel voor Sharepoint Services etc.
External Connector License Overview
Published: April 24, 2003
• Client Access Licensing Overview
• Microsoft Licensing Basics
The Windows Server 2003 External Connector (EC) license is an optional licensing alternative to address a specific customer scenario.
If you would like to allow your business partners or customers to access your network, you have two licensing options:
• Acquire Windows CALs for each of your external users.
• Acquire External Connector licenses for each copy of the Windows Server 2003 software that will be accessed by your external users.
An external user is a person who is not an employee, or similar personnel of the company or its affiliates, and is not someone to whom you provide hosted services using the server software.
The EC and the Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server External Connector (TSEC) licenses replace the Windows 2000 Internet Connector and Windows 2000 Terminal Services Internet Connector licenses, respectively.
An EC license can be acquired for servers running Windows Server 2003 Standard, Enterprise, or Datacenter Editions. It is not applicable to Web Edition.
In addition to using the EC license with Windows Server 2003, you may opt to use it with an earlier version of the server software, provided the version is no earlier than Windows NT® Server 4.0. Due to technical incompatibility, the TSEC license cannot be used with earlier versions of the server software.
Licensing Windows Server 2003, Web Edition
Published: Apri l 7, 2003 | Updated: September 19, 2003
Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, was specifically designed to be used as a single-pu rpose Web server. Delivering the next generation of Web infrastructure capabilities in Windows server operating systems, Web Edition is idea l for network service providers and self-hosting organizations seeking advanced Web functionality. Web Edition offers an economical and effi cient Web server operating system solution.
The integra tion of Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, with the newly re-architecte d IIS 6.0, ASP.NET, and the Microsoft .NET Framework enables any organ ization to rapidly deploy Web pages, Web sites, Web applications, and Web services.
Web Edition Licensing Model
Simila r to licensing requirements for other editions of the Windows Server 2 003 family, a server license is required for every copy of Web Edition installed.
Since Web Edition is limited to 10 in-bound server message block (SMB) connections for content publishing, Window s CALs are not required. Exceptions to this rule may occur when Window s Server 2003, Web Edition, is used as the scale-out front end for app lications such as Windows SharePoint™ Services and Windows Rights Mana gement Services. Using Web Edition in these types of configurations of fers customers an economical way to deploy scale-out applications. In such configurations, Windows Server™ CALs may still be required on the back end of a scale-out application.
Supp lemental Licensing Information for Windows SharePoint Services
Published: October 29, 2003 | Updated: June 17, 2004
Windows SharePoint Services conforms to the Windows Server 2003 licensing model.
The usage of the Windows SharePoint Services on Windows Server 2003, Web Edition, is limited to front-end Web serving tasks. The data storage portion of Windows SharePoint Services may not be installed or used on Windows Server 2003, Web Edition.
Device CAL and User Client Access Licenses
Microsoft is introducing a new type of Windows Client Access License (CAL). In addition to existing device-based CALs ("Device CAL"), a user-based CAL ("User CAL") will be available for purchase. You can choose to purchase a Windows Device CAL for every device accessing your servers, or you can purchase a Windows User CAL for every named user accessing your servers.
By having two types of Windows CALs, you are able to use the model that makes sense for your organization. For example, purchasing a Windows User CAL might make more sense if your company has a need for employees to have roaming access using multiple devices. Windows Device CALs may make more sense if your company has multiple-shift workers who share devices.
Similarly, Terminal Server (TS) will offer both device-based and user-based CALs: TS Device CAL and TS User CAL.

New External Connector License Option
The new External Connector license (EC) can be purchased to enable access to your servers instead of buying individual Windows CALs for external users (or their devices). The EC license is purchased for every copy of the Windows server software that is accessible to the external user. An example of an external user is a person who is not an employee or similar personnel of the company or its affiliates.
