Here at university of michigan, we had been using (testing, etc.) the
CITI MacNFS. Both 3 & 4 were the same project-- Honeyman was project
manager for both MacIP and MacNFS.

both products are now in apple's hands.

ALSO

didn't anybody mention CAP (specifically AUFS)?

it allows the unix box to act as an appleshare file server
with the advent of System 6.0's inclusion of AppleShare Client
this is a mostly free (with the exception of the kbox) alternative
to systems like tops.
