Use Team Foundation Server with DirectAccess


  • 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.


    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 TFS should support IPv6.

    DirectAccess is also named in this document from Microsoft to allow remote workers access to TFS ( 

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

    Hope that helps,
