Disconnect DirectAccess in Windows 8.x while on LAN

A small blog post to relay an interesing post from Richard Hicks. Microsoft just published an update applicable to Windows 8.x DirectAccess clients to solve an interesting problem When the DirectAccess clients are not able to reach the Network Location server While on LAN. As they are not able to reach NLS, they try to enable DirectAccess while on LAN. Users can wait for a while.


After you apply the update, your users will be able to disconnect from DirectAccess in such situation.



Thank you Richard for pointing that out.
