  • Joe this is perfect.  I'm teaching Direct Access this semester at the college where I teach.  I have 42 students this semester.  There semester assignement is setting up Direct Access.  I will post feedback as to how it goes as the semester progresses.

  • I am happy to have come across this - I am planning to deploy Direct Access in my organization and I will be using the test lab under a Hyper V as a proof of concept, I will definitely post my findings here

  • Is there any additional information availible for getting the Direct Access test lab working in a virtual environment, such as VMWare?  It only seems to work with real machines rather than virtualized.

  • David, The test lab instructions are designed to be independent of real machines, virtual machines, and the vritualization platform. If you are having specific problems, please post them at social.technet.microsoft.com/.../threads to see if there is a community solution.
