DirectAccess Design Guide is now available

The DirectAccess Design Guide is now available and published in the following locations:

·         As Web articles on TechNet

·         As a white paper in the Microsoft download center

This guide provides information about advantages, disadvantages, requirements, recommendations, and design considerations for deploying DirectAccess. It answers the “What,” “Why,” and “When” questions that your deployment design team might ask before deploying DirectAccess in a production environment.

Additionally, the Step By Step Guide: Demonstrate DirectAccess in a Test Lab white paper has been updated to include both the Release Candidate (RC) and Release to Manufacturing (RTM) versions of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.
