Monday, October 04, 2010 1:47 PMCan Branchcache and DFS run together? My goal is to provide quick access to traveling users via DirectAccess & Dsitributed Branchcache while also allowing users in remote offices, over the WAN, running XP to have quick access through syncronized DFS. Our data is centralized at the corp headquaters.

Yes, just so you ensure that the shares are BranchCache-enabled on the file server and that the file server is configured for BranchCache. (You can enable all shares or select individual shares for BranchCache on your file servers.)
Might be a good idea to review the BranchCache Overview at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee307962(WS.10).aspx to ensure that you're aware of all the key points, such as supported operating systems.
And you can find links to the BranchCache Design Guide and Deployment Guide at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=162776. Steps on deploying a BranchCache-capable file server can be found in the deployment guide, in the Distributed Cache mode step by step guide, and in the video at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=195814.
