SBS, CALs and Windows Server

By acaminos ·
I have a client who wants a server for VPN, Remote Access, Print Services, Database, File storage. They have 7 desktops and two printers When I recommended Windows SBS he said he would rather have Windows Server 2003 because there he can get more than 5 CAL's. There is plenty of info on the number of CALs that come with SBS ( 5 included then you buy more to expand) but I cannot find anything useful on Windows Server. Is this logic on his part sound or is it oversimplified?

SBS will support I believe up to 75 users. Recommended is about 50. So you can add CALs for those users. I think it comes with 5 or 10 but you can add more. It is very cost effect way to do everything he wants to do. I personally recommend a hard firewall with VPN though. But that is just me.
