Back in November 2012, we announced our MCA Beta client. We have been very busy working to improve the testing options that are available from the MCA client. Here’s what we’ve built for the 1.0 release:
We are excited to announce the 1.0 release of the Microsoft Connectivity Analyzer. This tool is a companion to the Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer web site. The MCA tool provides administrators and end users with the ability to run connectivity diagnostics for five common connectivity symptoms directly from their local computer. Users can test their own connectivity, and save results in an HTML format that administrators will recognize from viewing results on the RCA website.
Install the MCA 1.0 tool here: https://testconnectivity.microsoft.com/?tabid=client

Microsoft Lync Connectivity Analyzer Tool: You will also notice the Lync Connectivity Analyzer Tool on the client page. We are working on combining MCA with MLCA in the near future but wanted to make both these great tools available to customers now to improve our client diagnostics options.

Feedback: Send all feedback to the MCA Feedback alias. Please let us know what you think of the tool and whether this will be helpful in troubleshooting connectivity scenarios. Also feel free to provide feedback on additional tests you would like to see added in the future.
We are excited to announce the 2.1 release of the Microsoft Remote Connectivity Analyzer web site. The tool provides administrators and end users with the ability to run connectivity diagnostics for our servers to test common issues with Exchange, Lync and Office 365. We have added new Office 365 Domain Name Server tests, enhanced existing tests, and improved the overall site experience.
