    So we have a box running Windows 2000 Server acting as a general file and print server. Our email is run off-location on a Solaris box and we've had a heck of a time with spam so we tried out SpamFighter (http://www.spamfighter.com), it worked great so we figured we'd try the server version and cover the entire company. We forward the required ports (2 of em) then we start getting hammered with frigin FTP trojans and all this shit -- we've since closed the ports and rebuilt the server, gah.

    Well, I want to have a separate box for the spam filter without access to network shares and the like. We already own the W2kS license along with CAL for all our computers. If I install W2kS on another box does an additional CAL count as a license for that server or is there a separate server license I need?

    Thanks.

    You still need a server OS license for that new server. If you CALs are assigned per seat, theclients will be able to access both servers with the same CAL.

    Thanks, I think we'll just migrate to 2003 in the process.
