Windows Foundation Server 2008 comes preinstalled with 15 Client Access Licenses. These licenses allow up to 15 users to access the server as a file and print server, or a remote access server. You cannot purchase any additional Client Access Licenses for Windows Foundation Server 2008 as it is limited to 15 users in total.
I was wondering if you can use the Windows Foundation Server as a Terminal Server (even with the 15 user limit) on an SBS2008 Site.
I was looking at setting up SBS2008 on the main office (5 users) and Windows Foundation Server as a Terminal Server (buying in the TS client CALS) and allowing 3 Users on the remote site to have a Terminal Services Desktop with access to the small SQL database and Outlook. Or maybe Outlook anywhere. Any limitations in using this setup other than the 15 User limit?
Would it be powerfull enough to server up 3 remote desktops with Office 2007 Outlook and a small SQL database located on the SBS2008 server?
Any sugguestions or comments would be greatly appriciated! Thanks in advance 😉

Yes you can – you will need to purchase TS CALs, and you need to watch that Foundation Server can’t be used in a domain with more than 15 users (as per the EULA).
