It's also quite possible that samba has fixed the bug with referrals that necessitates the dfsclient command; if they haven't, we should figure out why not and submit a patch upstream.

In fact, they have; all I need to run is

smbclient -k //win.mit.edu/dfs -D profiles/g/geofft

to get smbclient's ftp-like interface.

  • Ticket #201 – Description

    initial v1  
    1 There's a dfsclient in the samba locker; it's cool, and quite helpful. But, Debathena should be able to mount CIFS directly and show them in a way accessible through the GUI and through the standard UNIX file system, without any effort, via the samba package. This would make accessing your WIN.MIT.EDU files on Athena really easy. We should either make some UI for mounting your DFS homedir, or document the process to do it manually.
