Started January 19th, 2007. The goal of the project is to develop an open-source, enterprise-class "AFS WebDAV" gateway to provide Kerberos authenticated, high-efficiency AFS sessions without the OpenAFS client via an unprivileged gateway server. Deployed at https://webdav-test.mit.edu/ .

What is AFS and why do I need it? AFS provides a system of accessing network file servers in a reasonable and scalable manner. So from a user standpoint, it's much like SMB/CIFS and Appleshare. A lot of universities (such as UNC Chapel Hill, where I work) use it to provide integrated access to files on central servers.

Getting Started You've just unpacked the new Mac. First things first - you'll want to set the time zone, time, and create the first account. I usually make the first account an admministrative one called 'help'.
Caveats: this worked for me, but your mileage may vary. I'm using 10.2.5, and I haven't tried it with other sub-versions. It should work with 10.2.
