Makati TechNet Session: Windows Server 2008 R2 DirectAccess


Guys, thank you for attending another Makati TechNet session! DirectAcess is a cool (really coooool!) feature of Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 and me including members of the Philippine Windows Users Group were very exited to share and demo this in front of you. I will be posting later our promised links but for now, here are some pictures that were taken in the said event.




Before the event, getting ready the machines that we are going to use.


Many thanks to Faelmar Tañada for the always and usual support to a PHIWUG event so Bong, thanks alot!

The event was very exciting, specially having to demo the latest feature of Windows Server R2 the Direct Access.


“The Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 operating systems support a new feature called DirectAccess that enables seamless remote access to intranet resources. Unlike traditional virtual private networks (VPNs), which require user intervention to initiate a connection to an intranet, DirectAccess allows any application on the client computer to have complete access to intranet resources while allowing the IT administrator to specify which resources or even client-side applications that are restricted for remote access.”


The demo was done over a machine running hyper-v. This hosts 7 virtual machines for a minimum direct access setup.

Demo on Direct Access deployment, installing and configuring.


Congratulations to those who won the raffle! 😀


Wow, this is a nice windows 7 booth! Picture Picture!

Many thanks to the members of PHIUWG for their usual support and attendance during these kinds of events. Thanks also to Pauvi from MS phil for her support and special thanks also to Bong for his great help on this event and to Jeo (Jay-R Barios) for his technical and moral help 😀

The whole album is here on high res:


See ya all in another event! Oh yea See ya all in the Windows 7 Launch!
