Currently we are able to read file using SFTP / FTP Client with NFS mount to load to HDFS. Would like to know- 1. Can we read a windows file directly (Streamsets Data Collector Edge uses HTTP Client as destination and no whole file option) 2. Any other alternative to SFTP

we are looking we could read a Windows path (\\ServerName\Path) without using NFS or SMB. If there is no possibility, which one is best recommended and what are other options which you would suggest similar to NFS / SMB
