Connecting from your own computer

Accessing your DS filespace with the DS-Filestore CIFS service

The CIFS service allows you to use your Desktop Services personal filespace (or Society filespaces) directly from a non-MCS machine.

When you have successfully set up your CIFS connection, your DS filespace will appear as just another network device (like your CD drive or local hard disk), and can be used in exactly the same way as any local filing system.

What is CIFS?

The Common Internet File System (CIFS) is also known as SMB/Samba. It provides native file access to shared network resources. See wikipedia for a detailed explanation of CIFS.
