What is the licensing scheme? by aschael
Posted: 16 Oct 01

Currently SharePoint Portal Server (SPS) uses a Client Access License (CAL) scheme.  This means that each and every user needs to have a CAL in order to use SPS.  It does not matter if the user uses the Web Folder or the Portal interface, they still need a CAL.

The Server License is listed at $3,999 per server without CALs (not per processor) and $72/CAL.  The actual cost for the Server License and CAL varies depending on your licensing agreement with Microsoft.  I would advice to contact your Microsoft representative for your actual cost.
A good resource for this topic is: http://www.microsoft.com/licensing
