How do I mount/map my AFS space to a network drive from my home computer?

It is not possible to mount an AFS directory via an operating system's built-in networking. While it is possible to mount your ITS AFS Personal Storage to a network drive from your home computer using third-party software (e.g.http://www.openafs.org/), it is important to note that CAEN does not support these third-party AFS clients on personal computers.

Any problems or questions you may have regarding the installation or configuration of third-party clients should be directed to the creators of the software.
