VPNs have always been a difficult to use for the end user. At the same time, the rise of Internet applications has made full-on direct connection to internal-only resources a necessity. The number of daily Help Desk calls alone makes the good old VPN a usability headache that needs a replacement. You can get that today with DirectAccess in Windows 7. This no-cost solution promises to give your users an automatic connection to internal IT, without needing to understand how they access those resources. But this super-cool tech isn't without some not-so-cool hurdles. Implementing it correctly involves new protocols, new gateways, new security, and a new approach. Learn exactly what to do with Eric Beehler, master of the always-on. You'll learn what you need to get started implementing a DirectAccess remote connectivity solution. You'll end up with no-hassle access for any users to any network resource, inside and out.
