If computers in your department are networked, you likely depend on network server software to perform certain functions, such as file and print sharing. To legally access this server software, a Client Access License (CAL) may be required. A CAL is not a software product. It is a license that gives a user the right to access the services of the server.
Note: The Microsoft Campus Agreement does not cover any server licensing which can be purchased through our Microsoft Software Through GovConnection Program.
