OpenText is and NFS client for windows which allows a member of a project to access the project research storage from a Windows PC. How ever it has a number of restrictions,
There are a number of alternatives to using OpenText on a Windows PC.
If you are just viewing files or editing small files then you could use a Virtual desktop in a web browser at https;//nx.reading.ac.uk:4443 (from anywhere) or using the NoMachine client to login to nx.reading.ac.uk (from on campus or via the VPN). The nomachine client can also be used to transfer files if needed.
The Managed File Transfer system allows you to transfer files to and from the project research storage from any system anywhere using a web browser or sftp/scp client.
You can use a SCP/SFTP client to transfer files to and from the project research storage via nxnode.rdg.ac.uk. This is how MFT accesses the research storage but doing it directly might be faster if you are transfer a lot of files or a number of large files. However it will only work from a PC connected to the University Local Area Network or VPN. Also nxnodes alternates between a number of servers so you may get a warning from your client that the server has changed.
It is also possible to access the file using a Windows UNC so you can drag and drop files using the Windows File Explorer. We do not recommend editing the files directly on UNC as the Windows PC does not know about restriction on the research storage which could leave you with an empty file.
