DirectAccess and bandwidth usage throttling RRS feed

  • Question

  • Data on our laptops is being protected with DPM client protection. Bandwidth usage throttling is enabled and when the laptops are on the LAN (connected wireless) the throttle is working.

    When the laptops are outside the office they connect to the LAN with DirectAccess, again via the wireless network card.

    When connected over DA the DPM client is able to sync its data but this time the bandwidth usage throttling is not working.

    I enabled QOS on the DA (UAG) server, but this has no effect.

    Any thoughts on this?

  • Just to wrap this up for anyone following, it appears Bandwidth throttling will not work over a DirectAccess connection due to a limitation in DirectAccess and/or QOS.

    The DirectAccess client can only use a Public or Private profile, but unless the Domain profile is appled QOS cannot be enforced. Thus no QOS on a DA connection and no Bandwidth throttling for DPM clients connected via DA.
