Windows Server 2008 installation with IPv6

I read an article some time back that described the ability (not  any how-to info) of Windows Server 2008 to allow remote logins via IPv6 without using a VPN.  I don't even know what they call this feature, so it has made finding accurate information for research difficult to find.
I'm just looking for pointers to some documentation on this.  If you can't tell, I am completely starting from scratch on this one. I am looking to upgrade our firewall and server, so any recommendations for the firewall are welcome.
Thanks,
Bad Panda

The feature you are remembering is called DirectAccess. It requires Windows 7 Enterprise or Ultimate on the client.

Here's the launch page for everything you need to know to get started.

Thanks for the resource.  We have volume licensing and only have access to W7 Pro.  It's too bad...this would have been very convenient.
Take it easy!

I am sure Microsoft would love it if you upgrade. You can also check to see if you can get Enterprise with their InTune subscription.
