you seem to expect Coda to export a local file system. It does not.
All access to files in Coda is possible via clients and /coda/<realm>/....
paths only.

You do not need to know that to be able to use Coda.
Servers store files somehow. It does not matter.

You should never try to directly access objects which are managed by
the servers like contents of their file storage (usually under /vicepa).
