See: http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/server/howtobuy/pricing/tsfaq.asp
Win2k and XP do not have built in TS Cals.

Put aside "rights" and look at it this way:

Win2K Pro machines have a built in TS CAL

Win95 does not.

Win95 connects to your TS server, it wants a CAL.

Since you purchased Win2K Pro licenses, which have a built in CAL, are you
entitled to MS giving you CAL licenses to use Win95 machines?  I'd say call
MS Licensing and ask.  They will be the only people who can tell you the
answer and provide the license.

Ouch!  So although we have effectively purchased a TS CAL for each PC as
part of the Win2k Pro license, because we have exercised the downgrade right
to install Windows 95, we can't use it?

Yeah I agree, the way I understood it you have to be explicitly running W2K
Pro in order to use the "built in" TS CAL license.

You don't.  If you are connecting with a Windows 95 workstation to a Win2K
Server running Citrix / Terminal servers you will need a TS CAL and Win2k
license for each connection.

Apologies for another licensing question!  We are about to start an
expansion of our XPe server farm, and I'm having some fun sorting out MS
Terminal Services CALS for the client machines...... 

We have about 200 fairly recent spec Dell PCs, which were supplied with
Windows 2000 Professional licences, but for various reasons, currently have
to run a downgrade installation of Windows 95 (yeuk!).  Now, the Win2K
licence for each PC includes a TS CAL, but as the PCs run Win95, how do I
convince the licensing server that all is legit?  

Cheers
