Excellent UAG DirectAccess Configuration Guide by Shannon Fritz

Shannon Fritz, who’s well known on the UAG DirectAccess forums at http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/forefrontedgeiag/threads for providing excellent community answers and insight, has put together a very nice UAG DirectAccess Configuration Guide. In Shannon’s configuration guide, you’ll find the following sections:

  • IP Addressing and the UAG Server
  • UAG Installation
  • Firewall and DNS Considerations
  • Certificates, Groups and Client requirements
  • Configuration Wizard: Clients
  • Network Location Server (NLS IIS Site)
  • Configuration Wizard : Infrastructure Servers
  • Configuration Wizard: Application Servers
  • Generate and Activate Policies
  • DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant
  • What won’t work over DirectAccess

    Thanks for the plug Tom!  I tend to edit those posts to keep current on any new discoveries or patches so the guide should remain current over time.
