The Solution Accelerators Team has just released the Microsoft DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant (DCA), a solution accelerator that helps streamline end-user support for DirectAccess.

The DCA installs on DirectAccess clients and adds an icon to the notification area of the desktop. With this icon, you can determine your intranet connectivity status. The DCA also provides tools to help users reconnect on their own if problems arise and creates diagnostics to help mobile users provide IT staff with key information.

The DCA download includes the Microsoft DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant Deployment Guide, written by our very own Dave Bishop.

Download, deploy, and most of all, enjoy!
