Corporate Resources

Specifies resources that are normally accessible to DirectAccess clients. You must configure this setting to have complete DCA functionality .Each entry is a string that identifies the type of resource and the identification of the resource. Each string in its respective key can be one of the following types:

- An IPv6 address or DNS name to ping. The syntax is the text PING: followed by a fully qualified domain name (FQDN) that resolves to an IPv6 address, or an IPv6 address, for example: or PING:2001:3039::0001.

We recommend that you use FQDNs instead of addresses where possible.

At least one of the resources must use the PING: syntax and name resolution.

- A Uniform Resource Locator (URL) to query with an HTTP request. The syntax is the word HTTP: followed by a URL that resolves to an IPv6 address of a Web server, for example: HTTP:http://2001:3039::0001/ or HTTP:

- A Universal Naming Convention (UNC) path to a file that the DCA checks. The DCA does not actually open or read the file; it only confirms that it exists. The syntax is the word FILE: followed by a UNC path that resolves to an IPv6 address file on a share, for example: FILE:\\2001:3039::0001\myshare\test.txt or FILE:\\myserver\myshare\test.txt.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
