Q: (from Keith)

We have a customer interested in possibly deploying Direct Access technology. He is interested in seeing a demo. Does MS have anything online (virtual lab) or anything we could use to demo this to a customer? Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

A:

Short of setting up your own Direct Access environment, there is a Direct Access video in the Windows 7 Demo Toolkit found at:

Lots of other Direct Access resources can be found:
