How can I have a RDP CAL in a StandAlone on an AWS EC2 Windows Server 2019 (non subscribed to AD)?

We have an AWS EC2 with Windows Server 2019 and we need to bring access to 20 external developers for RDP concurrent connections. What is the better license model to use an to buy it? Is the licensing across a CAL? Can this CAL be reused when the project will finished, in three months?

    Hello there,

    You can go with CAL.

    Purchase User CALs for each of the 20 external developers. This allows them to access the server from any device they use. Each user connecting to the server needs a User CAL.

    This article describes how to move Terminal Services Client Access Licenses (CALs) from one Terminal Services license server to another in Windows.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
