[SLUG] Server licences


A client who needs a server on which to run a Linux system. She reports that both Dell and HP in their quotes for supplying a suitable box insist that "licences are required before the server can be connected to another computer". Apparently different licences are needed for terminal servers, whatever that may be, and virtualisation servers.

Can anyone explain what these licences are about, please?
