We describe an on-going project to develop a Network Multimedia File System (NMFS) protocol. The protocol allows "transparent access of shared files across networks" as Sun's NFS protocol does, but attempts to meet a real-time delivery schedule. NMFS is designed to provide ubiquitous service over networks both designed and not designed to carry multimedia traffic.
