Connection to Solaris system

By lcw ·
Is there any software or anywhere to get my Windows system to access to my Sun system(file sharing) without going thru all the mess like telnet.

If all you need is file sharing (like a shared drive in Windows) you can install Samba. It is freeware available from www.samba.org or in Solaris package format at www.sunfreeware.com. It is a bit tricky to set up the first time, but documentationis good. You install it on your Sun server and then you can share folders from/to Windows. Good luck.

or, you could do it the other way round, with one of the NFS products for Windows. Think there's one in the Unix Utilities for Windows package

Sun's implementation of NFSv3 for file access is significantly faster than using Samba. Note that you can use UDP or TCP for compatibility with third-party NFS clients. I'd recommend using UDP for greater performance on a local subnet. WinaXe is a shareware X client/server that comes with some NFS tools. This may be helpful to you. Also, "Windows Services for UNIX" should have some usable NFS tools.

For File sharing : Sun PC Netlink - very easy to install. The Sun Server could be used as a PDC, BDC or member server. So it's accessible as if it was an NT server... ( file and print ) and it's FREE !!!! and supported by SUN!
