Our very own Steve Rachui published another great post over on his blog, this time about using the Windows Server 2008 R2 Direct Access feature to manage Internet based clients of System Center Configuration Manager 2007:
"Do you have internet based clients that you want to manage? Does the idea of switching to SCCM native mode to manage those client make you nervous? Do you have Windows 2008 R2 servers in your environment and are the internet systems you want to manage running Windows 7 (Enterprise or Ultimate) or Windows Server 2008 R2? If you said yes to all of these questions then you might just be interested in taking a look at Direct Access (DA)."
