Microsoft DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant (Microsoft DCA)

Microsoft DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant (Microsoft DCA) is a tool an administrator can use to improve an enterprise's DirectAccess connection.

Microsoft DCA has three major functions. It continuously informs users of their connection status; it has diagnostic tools built in for users to solve their connection problems without IT intervention and it provides tools for end users to give an IT administrator the necessary information to solve a problem.

Although used in Windows 7, Microsoft does not recommend using DirectAccess Connectivity Assistant in Windows 8.
