Does SafeGuard LAN Crypt support the Distributed File System (DFS)?
The Distributed File System (DFS) is supported by SafeGuard LAN Crypt Client 22.214.171.124 and above.
In a domain-based DFS, you can access the DFS either via the server name or via the domain name.
The encryption rules must always be created in the same way as used to access DFS.
If the DFS is accessed via the server name, the encryption rule must be based on a server name. If DFS is accessed via the domain name, the rule must be domain name based.
If you want to access the DFS both ways, you must define two encryption rules, one with the domain name and one with the server name.
Y: is mapped to \\DOMAIN\DFSROOT
Z: is mapped to \\SERVER.DOMAIN\DFSROOT
Nested DFS links:
Nested DFS links (DFS links to other DFS links or DFS roots) can be used but encryption rules must not include a physical path to the DFS link and there are some known problems in combination with persistent encryption. When copying an encrypted file to a plain folder it may become decrypted. When moving encrypted files to an ignored/excluded folder it may stay encrypted
