DirectAccess Windows Server 2012 R2 and Windows 8.1 - status connecting


  • I've successfully deployed DirectAccess on Windows Server 2012 R2 in a 2 node NLB cluster. Everything in the console is green and I can see clients connecting.

    Windows 7 clients can connect and with the DirectAccess connectivity assistant installed show as connected and I can access resources.

    On a Windows 8.1 client I can access resource and run the troubleshooting tool which reports no errors, but if I look at connections it shows as connecting and the status never changes to connected. Clients work correctly when on the internal network.

    I've looked at available hotfixes, but not found anything for when the status is incorrectly shown.

    Any ideas before I raise a support call?
