DATS: NFS Client DiskAccess for Windows 2000/2003/VISTA Running Terminal Services ™
is a specialized version of NFS Client DiskAccess for Windows 2000/2003/Vista Servers
running Terminal Services (Application Mode). With DATS, multiple
Windows clients may access UNIX or Linux data through a single Windows
Terminal Services host, eliminating the need to load DiskAccess on
every single client machine within the network.
If you need to integrate thin clients via Windows systems into multi-vendor networks and access NFS-based file and print resources on UNIX and mainframe hosts, then DiskAccess Terminal Services (DATS) is an ideal solution. The DATS product is SSC's NFS solution for the Windows Terminal Server environment. It has been built on the code-base of our award-winning DiskAccess NFS Client software. You can connect to resources with drag-and-drop ease and manage file permissions from within Windows property sheets. Using Windows Explorer, or Network Neighborhood you can browse and connect to file systems and printers located on UNIX, Linux or other NFS systems.
With DATS you can browse NFS resources without committing a drive letter, accessing network file systems only when you need them. Or you have the option of establishing a full-time link to your server. Browsed connections are mounted and unmounted automatically, and shortcuts to frequently accessed NFS folders or files can be added to the desktop. This approach makes accessing resources easier, reduces NFS server load, and improves overall network performance. With the DATS solution, users on each thin client maintain a separate workspace eliminating the possibility of a user getting access to another users resources and makes security simpler to manage. The DATS product is sold with a concurrent user license that lowers the total cost of ownership (TCO). In addition using DATS simplifies Administration by centralizing Administration tasks to a single server.

SSC's NFS Client Solutions
DiskAccess enables Windows 95/98 and Windows NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista systems to perform as NFS clients, so you can access file and print resources located on UNIX servers, mainframes, or other NFS-based server systems. Using NFS, DiskAccess sets a new standard for performance.
DiskAccess file management
DiskAccess fully incorporates NFS into the Windows environment, bringing new levels of integration to mixed networking environments. You can connect to resources with drag-and-drop ease and manage file permissions from within Windows property sheets. Using Windows Explorer, Network Neighborhood
(click here for image) , or File Manager
(click here for image) , you can browse and connect to file systems and printers located on UNIX or other NFS systems.
With DiskAccess, it is now possible to gain path-based (UNC) access to NFS files. Connections are automatically opened to NFS drives from desktop shortcuts and OLE-linked objects providing transparent access to NFS host systems. DiskAccess also makes NFS file access behave more like UNIX, with symbolic link support and automatic mounting when linked files are located on alternate servers.
Native TCP/IP Ensures Compatibility
DiskAccessTStakes advantage of Microsoft's native TCP/IP protocol stack, ensuring quicker installation, the fewest compatibility problems with third-party applications, and the broadest support for industry network adapters.
Based on Industry Standards
NFS is an industry-standard protocol. Based on Open Network Computing/ Network File System (ONC/NFS) standards, NFS integrates Windows systems into multi-vendor client/server networks, enabling an open exchange of files and network resources among Windows systems, UNIX systems, and mainframe hosts.
Digital Terminal Emulation
IBM Terminal Emulation
DiskAccessTS includes a powerful, versatile terminal emulator with support for VT320, VT220, VT102, VT100, VT52, SCOANSI, BBSANSI, printing, custom keyboard mapping, and command scripting. The terminal emulator also supports 80- and 132-column widths, custom color mapping, and WordPerfect mode. Most common file transfer protocols are supported, including ASCII, Kermit, Xmodem, Ymodem, and Zmodem. SSC's telnet emulation is state-of-the-art!
IBM terminal emulation provides direct connection to IBM host systems using telnet and TCP/IP. Once connected, Windows users can access all applications available to IBM terminal users. By simply opening a window, users can view, edit, and transfer files from the remote IBM system. Telnet 3270 satisfies mainframe connection needs, providing full color GDDM graphics support. Telnet 5250 connects Windows users to IBM S36-, S38-, and AS400-class systems. Both products emulate the screen, status, and keyboard functions of IBM terminals, making IBM connections fast and easy to use.
File Transfer Protocol
Transferring files between foreign networks, navigating firewalls, and establishing anonymous connections require file transfer protocol (ftp). SSC's ftp uses an easy-to-use Windows interface to access ftp servers. Sending and retrieving files can be accomplished with only a few mouse-clicks.
Network Time Protocol
DiskAccess provides an ntp client to synchronize time within the network. This means time stamps are synchronized between systems, ensuring that file creation and modify times are consistent among all the systems on your network and allowing more accurate tracking of revisions.
Remote Shell Daemon and Remote Copy Support
Remote Shell Daemon (rshd) gives users a mechanism for remote users to execute DOS commands. Remote Copy Protocol (rcp) allows files to be copied between remote systems without having to log on to the server or mount a network drive. DiskAccess also includes utilities to convert text files between UNIX and DOS.
