I wanted to inform everyone that I have a production Terminal Server 2008
environment with legit "Per User" CALs. If you ever need a test subject,
feel free to contact me. I am utilizing rdesktop 1.6 on my thin clients
throughout the network. As noted by previous users, rdesktop 1.6 does not
fully support Terminal Server 2008 functionality such as the "Session
Broker" for load balancing.
I spoke with an Escalation Engineer from Microsoft this week about Terminal
Server 2008 Licensing. He spoke about the size change of the Licensing
Certificate Key from 512-bits to 2048-bits and the issues that was causing
with other RDP clients. He also said that he has direct contact with the
Terminal Server development team. Microsoft is currently fixing two bugs our
organization discovered with Terminal Server 2008 Licensing in a 2003
domain. If there is a specific question you have I may be able to petition
our Escalation Engineer to question the Development Team about it.
