Use Team Foundation Server with DirectAccess

    Question

  • Hello,

    We have deployed DirectAccess to our employee machines and a user informed us that they were no longer able to access their Team Foundation Server 2010? through Visual Studio 2010 while on DA.

    connections:

    user (Home on DA) -> Visual Studio -> Team Foundation Server

    I verified the connection works while onsite just not offsite. I think the issue is TFS not supporting v6 addressing.

    thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated.

  • Hi,

    unfortunately I cannot test it myself. From the Microsoft document http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/hh994905.aspx TFS should support IPv6.

    DirectAccess is also named in this document from Microsoft to allow remote workers access to TFS (https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fblogs.msdn.com%2Fcfs-filesystemfile.ashx%2F__key%2FCommunityServer-Components-PostAttachments%2F00-09-88-27-25%2FExposing-Team-Foundation-Server-to-the-Internet.docx). 

    Over DA access over an IP address will not work, or if you use a short name.

    Hope that helps,

    Lutz
