- Highlander AFS - Highlander AFS is NJIT’s implementation of the Andrew File System, a distributed computing environment comprised of multiple file and database servers and several hundred Unix, Windows, Linux, and Macintosh client computers. AFS provides a very broad spectrum of both commercial and open source application software, compilers, and utilities. If your workstation is an AFS-client computer, you may be able to run software compatible with your platform without having to install it on your computer. If your workstation is not an AFS client, you may be able to run an X-Windows terminal session and connect to one of many public AFS clients and run the software on that machine.
