Hi!


I am thinking of the following setup:

|============|
| Internet |
| Users BYOD |
=============
||
|| access
\/

================ ==================
| SYNOLOGY providing | Synology as LDAP Client | SERVER 2012 R2 |
| RADIUS, Cloud, Chat | ======================> | |
| Office, Mail, ... | | LDAP with USERS |
================ =================
/\
|| access
||
|=============|
| WIFI/INTRANET |
| Users BYOD & PCs |
==============


(Sorry for ASCII drawing, I'm not allowed to post pictures or links here yet. I hope it does not get scrambled...)


  • The users are in the LDAP of the Windows Server AD.
  • The Synology will be a client of that LDAP.
  • All the services which require authentication (see picture) will be hosted on the Synology.
  • The RADIUS is also the Synology RADIUS service.
  • There will be no direct connection of any user or PC to the Server 2012 R2. Only the Synology is a client of the AD/LDAP


My Question: Do I need User or Device CALs for this scenario?


Thanks!

Ben
