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:

Microsoft Connectivity Analyzer Tool 1.0

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
