World IPv6 Launch Day

It’s coming…and this time it’s for real. That’s right; World IPv6 Launch Day is set for June 6, 2012. Building on the successful World IPv6 Day, major Internet Service Providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies from around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services. Sadly, my ISP, Cox Communications, does not appear to be participating. That means I’ll continue using Hurricane Electric’s IPv6 tunnel broker to provide me with native IPv6 access to the Internet. The world is moving to IPv6, so it’s time to get on board!

Manage Out Fails for Non-ICMP Traffic with UAG DirectAccess

You may encounter a scenario in which the ability to manage out fails for DirectAccess clients using Forefront UAG 2010. You may also receive the following error:

4984 “An IPsec extended mode negotiation failed”

This can happen when custom security policies are applied to the DirectAccess client, specifically altering the settings for “Access this computer from the network“.

For more information regarding this error and how to resolve it, please refer to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 2663354.

Discussing DirectAccess on Security Talk

Recently I had the pleasure of sitting down with my good friends Yuri Diogenes and Tom Shinder to talk about DirectAccess on their video series “Security Talk – From End to Edge and Beyond“. We discussed the current state of DirectAccess in Windows Server 2008 R2, and then we talked in detail about some of the compelling new features of DirectAccess coming in Windows Server 2012. You can watch the video interview here. Enjoy!
