First, the ipconfig output on a DirectAccess client located behind a NAT device:
Now let’s ping DC1:
Now let’s do a tracert from CLIENT1 and DC1:
With this information you should be able to figure out what the “novel” device is in the path between CLIENT1 and DC1. If you know, then consider yourself pretty well-versed with IPv6 addressing. If you don’t know, then here’s a great opportunity to learn something new!
Now take a look at figures 4 and 5 and determine what device was removed from the path:
Think about the solutions and put your answer in the comments section. Give your reasoning. I’ll post the answer and a network diagram of the solution tomorrow.
