  • Hi Amig@. The DirectAccess client will detect if the DirectAccess server is behind a NAT device and in that case it will use Teredo or IPHTTPS as both support NAT (6to4 doesn't). However, the DirectAccess server has to be configured with two consecutive public IP adresseses in his external interface. This is mandatory.

    Hope it helps

  • Hi

     

    As a conclusion, NAT is supported on client side with Teredo but not supported on server-side because Teredo requires two consecutive public IPv4 addresses.

     

    Have a nice day.

  • Hi

    If your server is behind a NAT you can get IP-HTTPS and Teredo working

    It is discussed here
