Have a slight licencing query i've been asked about and i'm not 100% on the advice i'm about to give...
Scenario: A clock-card machine running some software that makes it available to other people on the network.
Are we right in thinking this machine would need to be running Windows Server as it's acting as a 'Server' of sorts? Or would we be ok with a Workstation OS (XP/Windows 7) as the machine wouldn't be used for anything else?
We have Windows client machines here with 4 Ubuntu servers setup with samba on a workgroup. Multiple machines of different ages (some still using Windows 2000) and the last thing we want to do is get caught out for breaking the EULA. Ideally we don't want a Windows server (as we'd need to buy several packs of CALs), but the software in question only works in a Windows enviroment (sigh!).
