Consider the following scenario:
- You use DirectAccess with IP-HTTPS or TEREDO to connect to the corporate network.
- You access and download some files from a corporate network share.
In this scenario, DirectAccess works correctly. However, you expect better network performance.
Network performance can be improved by switching to a "Microsoft Always On" virtual private network (VPN).
