Subject Re: How to place a data ito HDFS::!
Date Fri, 05 Jun 2009 09:37:54 GMT
I have setup machines just to act as HADOOP clients which are not part 
of the actual cluster (master/slave config). The only thing is that 
these machines acting as hadoop clients were all internal in our network 
and I have not tested with remote machines outside our internal LAN. My 
assumption is if the access privilages are set right from the remote 
machines (as clients) pointing to the namenode in the cluster you could 
probably place data into HDFS without issues.
