August 2014 update rollup for Windows 8.1 what’s new for DirectAccess

There is nothing to do in august, except being in vacation. It’s not the case for Microsoft folks who just released the August rollup for Windows 8.1/RT/Windows Server 2012 R2.

If we take a look at the related KB2975719, we will discover that’s it include improvements but also bug fix, one two of them is are related to DirectAccess :

  • KB2966087 : You intermittently cannot connect to the DirectAccess server by using the IP-HTTPS adapter in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2.
  • KB2984374 : Connect to incorrect entry point when Windows 8.1 or Windows Server 2012 R2-based computer wakes from sleep or hibernate (Thank you Jason, I missed it)

So we have something to deploy in august. Don’t wait and update your DirectAccess clients
