Accessing Applications from Multiple File Servers in a Computer Network

J. S.J. Daka and J. S. Isaac

Abstract

This study proposes a technique of accessing applications from multiple file servers in a computer network that caters for a large user community. The technique is a step towards creating a computer network system that is simple to implement, scalable, easy to manage, transparent to the user and suitable for a university-type environment. The proposed technique has some features of a distributed system, but is not as complex. It is built around a very popular commercial network operating system called NetWare.
