Upcoming DirectAccess Training Events in 2015

Did you attend the DirectAccess session at this year’s Microsoft Ignite conference? Of course not. There wasn’t one! Not to worry though, as I will be presenting DirectAccess sessions at several different events around the country later this year.

Techmentor ConferenceIf you’re looking for deep-dive DirectAccess training, I’ll be delivering a three-hour training session at the TechMentor Conference in Redmond, WA. The event takes place August 3-7, 2015. Don’t forget to use registration code TMRSK05 to save $500.00! If you are on the east coast of the U.S. you’ll be happy to hear that I will also be presenting a DirectAccess session at the TechMentor Conference to be held at the Royal Pacific Resort at Universal in Orlando, FL, from November 16-20. I’ll provide more details on this event soon.

IT Dev ConnectionsIn addition I will be delivering a few DirectAccess sessions at IT/Dev Connections in Las Vegas, NV. I’ll be covering topics such as DirectAccess design and configuration, as well as implementation tips, tricks, and best practices. This event will be held at the Aria Hotel and Resort from September 14-17, 2015.

Hope to see you at one of these great events this year!

DirectAccess Clients Unable to Access Citrix XenApp Resources

DirectAccess Clients Unable to Access Citrix XenApp ResourcesAfter implementing DirectAccess, remote connected clients may be unable to access resources published by Citrix XenApp. This can occur because the configuration for Citrix XenApp returns IPv4 addresses instead of hostnames to DirectAccess clients. As DirectAccess uses IPv6 exclusively for client to gateway communication, the connection fails.

To resolve this issue, it is necessary to configure Citrix XenApp to return fully qualified domain names (FQDNs) instead of IPv4 addresses. This will allow the DirectAccess DNS64 service to function properly and return an IPv6 address to the client, restoring connectivity to XenApp resources.

To configure Citrix XenApp to return FQDNs, refer to one of the following Citrix technical support articles for more information.
