Applies To: Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2



In this test lab scenario, DirectAccess is deployed with:

  • DC1—A server that is configured as a domain controller, DNS server, and DHCP server for the corp.contoso.com domain.

  • 2-DC1—A server that is configured as a domain controller and DNS server for the corp2.corp.contoso.com domain.

  • EDGE1 and 2-EDGE1—Two servers on the internal network that are configured as Remote Access servers. Each server has two network adapters; one connected to the internal network, and the other connected to the external network.

  • APP1 and 2-APP1—Two servers on the internal network that are configured as web and file servers.

  • APP2—A computer on the internal network that is configured as an IPv4 only web and file server. This computer is used to highlight the NAT64/DNS64 capabilities. This guide uses Windows Server 2003 SP2; however, you can use any computer that is configured as an IPv4 only computer.

  • ROUTER1—A server that is configured to provide routing between the two corporate internal networks.

  • INET1—A server that is configured as an Internet DNS and DHCP server.

  • NAT1—A client computer that is configured as a network address translator (NAT) device using Internet Connection Sharing.

  • CLIENT1 and CLIENT2—Two client computers that are configured as DirectAccess clients that will be used to test DirectAccess connectivity when moving between the internal network, the simulated Internet, and a home network. CLIENT2 is a Windows® 7 client.

The test lab consists of four subnets that simulate the following:

  • A home network named Homenet (192.168.137.0/24) connected to the Internet by a NAT.

  • The external network represented by the Internet subnet (131.107.0.0/24).

  • An internal network named Corpnet (10.0.0.0/24; 2001:db8:1::/64) separated from the Internet by the EDGE1 Remote Access server.

  • An internal network named 2-Corpnet1 (10.2.0.0/24; 2001:db8:2::/64) separated from the Internet by the 2-EDGE1 Remote Access server.

Computers on each subnet connect using either a physical or virtual hub or switch, as shown in the following figure.
