I'm trying to setup Direct Access on our network. I've followed all the steps on this and other websites http://blogs.technet.com/b/canitpro/archive/2014/01/06/step-by-step-enabling-directaccess-in-windows-server-2012.aspx

I have the proper ports forwarded on the firewall the FQDN replies but from the laptop in network connections it shows Direct access connecting "Attempting to reach network resources and never connects. What can I look for to find my problem?
Thanks

Sadly there is such a thing as oversimplifying, and that blog post appears to have done exactly that. It doesn't discuss limitations (such as no windows 7 support) and isn't good about describing the two consecutive IP issues. I would instead stick to the official documentation. The test labs are easy to follow but still provide better information for making key decisions during the initial setup.

I just posted that as an example. There are others of course. I'm using Windows 8 here. I just can't find the issue. There aren't any errors on the server so I don't know where to troubleshoot

This is the only error I see

The certificate binding for the network location server has been modified. Without the correct certificate, connectivity for DirectAccess clients located in the internal network will not work as expected.

But how can I fix this?
