SUMMARY: Knowing who, when, and what needs a Client Access License (CAL) is a great question and one our team answers often. Under most scenarios, CAL requirements are generally straight forward, however, there are several specific scenarios which we address below. In this Licensing How To post, we cover the basics of Client Access Licensing, and recap a few common scenarios which may apply to you.
The Licensing How To series posts are provided by our Customer Service Presales and Licensing team members. These scenario based licensing topics are written on trending topics and issues based on their interactions with customers, Partners, and field sellers. For more posts from the Licensing How To series, search the “Licensing How To” tag on this blog.

Do I need a CAL?” Server software licensed via the Server / CAL licensing model always requires some sort of server license (which may be per instance or per processor depending on the Product) as well Client Access Licenses (CALs) for users and/or devices to access the server software. However, the question of who or what needs a CAL, along with any noted exceptions, varies by product.
