I have to admit we haven't done a lot of pushing, and when we do it's usually via HTTP. But now that we are moving our Distribution Points to NAS, we will be losing HTTP capability. So only now we're noticing this. I'm hoping there is a way to mount the CasperShare without it being visible in Finder.
Anytime you mount a "Share Point" in OS X you will see something like shown above. It's just that you aren't' seeing the share point mounted as a typical share point, and simply being mounted as a folder.
We're actually migrating away from AFP (and HTTP) as we move the Distribution Points to NAS. We'll need to test to see if the same thing happens with SMB mounts, and whether we can hide the mounts.
So no SCP or FTP or SFTP capability in JSS? :)
I'll understand if you can't give details due to security/confidentiality, but I'm curious what kind of infrastructure you're standing up that you're going to be using HTTP. I have to admit I'm a little concerned about HTTP, but mostly due to AAMEE (c'mon Jody, give us flat packages! <g>).
We've always seen it. Users have gotten used to it. We're going to be moving to https delivery on new infrastructure so it'll go away at some point.
