As most of you probably heard, with the release of Windows Server 2012, DirectAccess is now tightly integrated into the server operating system. This is a significant development for this technology, which will make it much more available and affordable to many organizations. There are also some technical changes and improvements that will make it easier to deploy. The technology is also referred to as Unified Remote Access (URA).
For the past few months, I’ve been working on a new book covering this topic, and it will be finished and released in a few months. The book will be approximately 280 pages long, and covers topics such as:
- Introduction to IPv6 and IPv4/IPv6 interoperability
- Planning your deployment
- Preparing a Group Policy infrastructure
- Planning and configuring a certificate infrastructure
- Planning and configuring client access
- multi-site deployment
- Enhanced configurations for infrastructure servers
- NAP and OTP enhancements
- Monitoring and Troubleshooting
As the book develops, I’ll post more news here, so check back often!
