Server 2012 DirectAccess and QOS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone,

    Having read through the forums, I found a couple of threads on the limitations of QOS in relation to DirectAccess and I was wondering if this has been resolved in Server 2012/Server 2012 R2 or whether a work around is now available?

    I'm trying to use DPM 2012 R2 for backup of multiple laptops which works well over DirectAccess; up to the point where it eats all the available bandwidth causing ping times to go over 1000ms and the internet connection to become more or less unusable.

  • Hi,

    Not sure you can use Windows QOS because your trafic goes throught the IPSEC tunnel witch are encapsulated in HTTPS (common case but Teredo is also possible). QOS only see HTTPS, not your protocol Inside HTTPS+IPSEC. I'm not a DPM expert but for sure there might have some ways to control consumed bandwdith at DPM agent level.
