ADConnect lets you extend Active Directory (AD) domain services to remote devices on your NetCloud Engine virtual overlay networks. In just three simple steps, you can use ADConnect to provide domain services to remote users and devices anywhere without changes to DNS, policy and firewall configurations.


  1. Download and install the NetCloud Engine client on the AD domain controller(s) you want to add to your network
  2. Activate the ADConnect app from the NetCloud Engine web console
  3. Within ADConnect, select which AD domain controllers from step-1 above and you’re done—remote devices are now always on your AD domain from anywhere


  • Easy to deploy, no configuration or Group Policy Option (GPO) changes required
  • Supports any number of primary and secondary AD domain controllers
  • Remote users are always on domain, no end user actions required
  • No need for policy updates, DNS or firewall configuration changes


  • Extend domain services to remote users and devices anywhere
  • Ensure password resets and security patches are pushed in real-time
  • Enable remote users to always utilize AD DNS

What's new

ADConnect no longer limits the number of domain controllers that can be added to a network (previous limit was 3).
