But While pinging from a DA Client Machine to another DA Client Machine Connected on the Same domain and same DA server i am getting Request Timed Out. How is this possible to get ping response from one to another DA Client Machine.

    When DirectAccess clients are on Internet, they use IPv6. if both clients use the same IPv6 transition technology (Aka IPS-HTTPS), they are also on the same subnet. In IPv6 when hosts are on the same subnet, clients are using the link-local address (FE80), not the global unicast one. I've discussed this subject in a blog post to secure communication between DirectAccess clients :
