Using the Andrew File System with BSD

Since the beginning of networks, one of the basic ideas has been sharing of files; even with the Internet as advanced as today, simple platform independent sharing is not common. Why is the closest thing we use WebDAV, a 'neat trick over http', instead of a real protocol?

In this paper the Andrew File System will be described which has been (and is) the file sharing core of many universities and companies world-wide. Also the reason for its relative unawareness in the community will be answered, and its actual features and performance in comparison with alternative filesystems. Finally some information will be given on how to use with our favourite OS: BSD.
