Download the new IDP Guide for DirectAccess


The Infrastructure Planning and Design team has released the new IPD Guide for DirectAccess. This guide provides guidance for designing a DirectAccess infrastructure in an easy-to-follow, four-step process that explains 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.


The four key steps covered in the design process for DirectAccess include:

  • Aligning the project scope with the business requirements

  • Determining whether IPv6, Teredo, 6to4, and IP-HTTPS connectivity will be supported for Internet-based clients

  • Assessing the need for IPv6/IPv4 network address translation service and ISATAP for internal communication

  • Determining the number and placement of servers, the certificate services requirements, and location of CRL distribution points
