NSF probably won't be as fast, but then again the WAN may be the limiting
factor anyway. It should be simpler to use once you have it setup. You
will have an IFS folder pointed at ( mounted ) to the other system. When
you write a file to your local IFS folder it will actually be written on
the other system. Reads would be reversed as data would actually be read
from the other system.
Now if process that creates these images is time sensitive ( as in how long
it can take to run ), then FTP solution would be better since the files
could be written faster to the local system then transferred later.

Is NFS suitable for batch copying many files to a drive on a Win system
wan (many states away),

or is it more for accessing files on other servers and use ftp for batch
transfers like this?
Hundreds of files in the 1-20 meg range size. These are .tif and .pdf from
Content Manager, stored in ifs.
