dfstool is a command line tool that enables Mac OS X users to query for and mount SMB shares indexed via the DFS (Distributed File System) service on a Windows server. dfstool is meant for use with Mac OS X Snow Leopard and has been tested with 10.6.7 and later. DFS support is included in Mac OS X Lion 10.7, so dfstool is not needed with that version of the operating system.
