A client of mine wants the Direct Access role to be installed within a Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual machine.

I have already found instructions for setting up Direct Access but these guides don't include any instructions on how to set up the Hyper-V networking to support installing Direct Access within a Server 2016 Hyper-V virtual machine.

Please provide me with the instructions for installing Direct Access including setting up the Hyper-V virtual machine networking that is necessary for installing Direct Access within a Hyper-V virtual machine.

Direct Access will be installed on a server that has 4 physical RJ network ports.

None. The host does not need any configuration.

The simple way to look at this: The VM is a physical box. Treat it as one. The DirectAccess instructions are to set up a server operating system, which just happens to be virtualized, to accept incoming DA connection requests.

DA is awesome. Run with it. :)
