I have a client that currently has 9 xp pro workstations.
On one of the workstations, Noah is installed as a server, and 4 other workstations connect to the database on the Noah machine.
On a different workstation, Business works is installed, and 2 other machines connect.
We would like an outside machine to also connect to the BW machine.
The office has to upgrade to a Server/Client license for Business works, which involves getting a Windows 2003 Standard server. I am currently looking at a CAL for 5, plus 1 Terminal Server seat.

Here is my dilemna...
I will have to migrate everything to a domain, in order for TS to work with the remote office to access the Business works software installed on the Domain controller. Concerning the 5 CAL's, does that mean that only 5 of the 9 workstations can be authenticated to the Domain Controller? If that is the case, how difficult would it be to keep the workstation that hosts the Noah software accessible from other workstations? ( and would it matter if those other workstations are on the domain and the noah machine is not?)
