How to crack Windows Terminal Services 3 month
Warning: greyhat content.
Thanks to a Microsoft article, I've found out that it is very easy to
extend your Windows Terminal Services 3-month trial or experience
time. It's so easy that I'm sure many administrators have done this in
their own systems, while waiting for their managers or financial staff to
buy the definitive licenses (not being hypocrite here).
Following these instructions, you don't have to crack any program. You
won't mess with your system. The magic is to only delete the licenses
databases both in the server and the clients, and let windows re-create
them for you.
Make sure you've installed "Terminal Services Licensing". By the way,
this method only makes sense if you need to use Terminal Services in
Application Mode, which is the one that requires licensing.
The idea is quite simple.
First, disconnect all users from the terminal. If you need to do this
remotely, you can also disconnect yourself, and access the files
Go to %WINDIR%\system32\lserver
Notice the file TSLIC.edb. Rename it to tslic.old
In every client computer, remove the CAL TS registry keys, located at:
Restart your server.

Finally, if you need more information about how to crack terminal
services, go check at Microsoft's web site. See the "Cause 2" steps. :-)
Shouldn't MS improve the security for TS Licensing in the next versions
of Windows (2003 with SP1 is also easy to "crack")?
PS> I am definitely against software piracy. I strongly believe that
Microsoft should strength their anti-piracy policy. Only then they could
theoretically lower their licensing prices. The biggest result, though,
would be a huge increase of free software popularity. Only then we,
FOSS proponents, would have the opportunity to prove our paradigm is
superior (now I'm being hypocrite, I guess).
UPDATE: Since Windows 2003, instead of following the complex process
above, you can just switch to "Per User" mode. As long as you have a TS
Licensing server up, it should work, even if you don't have license. If
that's not the case please leave a comment below.
