Remotely get files out of DFS

Question(s)

Is there a supported (and publicly documented) way of remotely getting
files out of DFS?

Context

DFS is the network distributed file system used by the WIN.MIT.EDU machines (WinAthena).

Solution

There is currently no public documentation. There are various small private efforts.

  • There's a "mount the fileshare" option (may require VPN if used from off-campus). See Connect to DFS from Windows.
  • There's "athrun samba dfsclient" (for use from Athena unix machines).
