Direct Acess Not Allowing Internet Access

Hi,

I've recently setup a direct access server which works fine without force tunneling enabled. We need to have the option enabled as all our RDP shortcuts are locked down to the external IP address of the office.

VPN to the server works fine with default gateway option ticked, however, we would rather use Direct Access to save having to connect to the VPN every time.

Any idea's?

Thanks!

if you have Direct access, you can connect to RDP server using name of the server, not IP address of the server.

If you want to keep using IP address, Remote Gateway server might be a better solutions

This is the answer.
Direct Access cannot access IP address. It only able to access the hostname
