Windows Server® 2012 combines DirectAccess and Routing and Remote Access Service (RRAS) VPN into a single Remote Access role. This topic describes the planning steps required in order to deploy a single Windows Server 2012 Remote Access server with a full range of basic and advanced features:
Step 1: Plan the Remote Access Infrastructure—Plan network and server topology, firewall settings, certificate requirements, DNS and Active Directory, DirectAccess management servers, and the DirectAccess network location server.
Step 2: Plan the Remote Access Deployment—Plan client and server deployment, and DirectAccess infrastructure and application servers.
Step 3: Record the plan—Record your planning decisions for Remote Access advanced deployment. This record can be used as a job aid for everyone involved in completing the deployment steps.
