That's a good question because it might be more than what you think. If you check the current documentation, a DirectAccess client needs to be able to connect to the NLS server to turn off it's NRPT. The definition of a connection from what is documented is a HTTP 200 OK response. This might give you the impression that anything that comes after the 200 OK can be valid or garbage.

Not true. In fact, the DirectAccess client must be able to get a *valid* response from the NLS server. That means the NLS server must provide a valid response from the perspective of WinHTTP. One thing that could cause such a failure is an invalid header returned from the Web server.

Make sure to check the Edge Man blog for a detailed account of a case where everything seems right, but a bad header caused the DirectAccess client connection to the NLS to fail, even though the connection from IE was OK!

HTH,
Tom
