Windows Vista Enterprise Windows 7 & DirectAccess Mobile Computing

This is very cool – see the full page for more details

Working outside the office is about to become a lot simpler. DirectAccess in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 enhances the productivity of mobile workers by connecting them seamlessly and more securely to their corporate network any time they have Internet access—without the need to VPN. When IT enables DirectAccess, the whole corporate network file shares, intranet Web sites, and line-of-business applications can remain accessible wherever you have an Internet connection.

For people who can't wait to try or start using this kind of always-connected capability, you can use a program called VPN Dialer 2009 which is widely available just by looking for it on any search engine. It is not a direct equivalent, but it does allow setting up a persistent VPN link from Windows XP/Vista to any RRAS server using a standard VPN user account over IPv4, and keeps it connected even when no user is logged on, for as long as the remote system has power and Internet access.
