IPD Guides for DirectAccess at Microsoft Connect

The Infrastructure Planning and Design team is working on a new guide: DirectAccess. This IPD guide provides actionable guidance for designing a DirectAccess infrastructure. The guide’s easy-to-follow, four-step process gives a straightforward explanation of the infrastructure required for clients to be connected from the Internet to resources on the corporate network, whether or not the organization has begun deploying IPv6.
