perhaps it's not mentioned because, indeed, this is the entire
point of NAS.  you run the "nasd" server program on each of your
remote terminals, and you run NAS-aware applications on your servers.
NAS-aware applications can include the minimal clients included
with NAS itsef (auplay, auedit, etc), programs which are available
with built-in nas support (madplay is one, there are many others),
and even some OSS (i.e., not alsa) client programs which can be
made NAS-aware by running them under audiooss.
