    Hi,

    A friend order a dedicate server with Microsoft Server 2012 R2, from hosting company and get it full licence (2012 R2 licence cost extra 30 usd/m).
    Now for adding more RDP session they ask for paying RDS licence.

    How he can workaround this problem?

    He is newbie using Microsoft Server.

    Thank you

    That will not be legal (or in fact very ILLEGAL).
    While it will work for "home" environment, I would be careful to use it in hosting environment!
