  • Hi,

    This interface is disabled when :

    -another transition protocol is operational (eg teredo, just run A NETSH INTERFACE TEREDO SHOW STATE)

    -DirectAccess client is connected on LAN (just provide a NETSH NAMESPACE SHOW EF to determine your NRPT state)

    What operating system are you running on client-side Windows 7 or 8?

    Did you configure your URA server with a network interface connected to Internet (Eg public addresses)?

  • Hi,

    So not so simple. Can you provide the report generated by the Direct Access Connectivity Assistant when the DirectAccess client is connected trying to establish communication.
