A customer has requested recently that they want to be able to RDP to Direct Access Machines. You Can do this by doing the following.

  1. Create a Group Policy and only Apply it to your DA devices group.
  2. Edit the GPO, Expand “Computer Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Windows Firewall with Advanced Security > Windows Firewall with Advanced Security > Inbound Rules
  3. Now Create a new Inbound Rule
  • Right Click New Rule
  • Select Port
  • Choose TCP and Specific port will be “3389
  • Select Allow the Connection
  • Choose profiles “Private and Public
  • Name the Rule “Remote Desktop Services via DirectAccess
  • Right click the rule named “Remote Desktop Services via DirectAccess” and choose properties
  • Go to the “Advanced” Tab and change the Edge Traversal option to “Allow edge traversal

Finally run a GPupdate on the DA machine and you should then be able to RDP onto the DA machine Smile (Please note you must have ISATAP configured and Remote via IPV6 Address)
