Direct Access and WIndows Phone 8.1? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all –

    I am reaching out to the community here because I haven’t been able to find anything concrete. 

    The scenario is that we wish to have links which are sent through an on-prem SharePoint farm resolve on a user’s Windows Phone whilst roaming.  The root of the issue is that the client does not have split DNS in place.  Therefore when they send a link from the SharePoint site it’s URL is mysite.acme.int, for example, which is not resolvable from outside of the corporate network; Acme.com is however.

    We have Direct Access (2012 R2) in place and use Windows Phone 8.1.  What I am trying to determine is whether or not we can leverage a DA connection with the Windows Phones in order to attain URL resolution.

    Barring that does anyone have any bright ideas on how to conquer the problem?

    Kind regards and thanks in advance!
