While DirectAccess promises to change the world of mobile computing, currently there are a few issues that need to be handled before we see widespread adoption. One of those issues has been the ability to provide some level and feedback to end users who are having problems with their DirectAccess connections.
That problem has been partially solved with the release of the DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant (DCA). The DCA provides end users feedback on their DA connections and provide them information that will help IT solve problems the user is having with DA.
