Hello, my question was :
I have a Sun ultra 60 with solaris 2.7 connected to the network with
Macintosh and PC computers.
>From the pc with telnet I can work on the sun machine.
Now I don't have enough space on the sun.
I would like to use space from the PC. I want to install a file on the pc
and use it with the sun machine.
I tried to mount a directory from the pc to the sun station with the command
mount -F pcfs pc_machine:/ sun_machine:/export/home
with no success. The answer was :
pc_machine:/ already mount or allowable mount point exceed.
My question is :
Is it possible to mount a pc directory on a sun machine (I do it between 2
unix machines or a pc with a pc with solaris for x86) ?
What command line should I use ?
Have you got another solution for this problem except buying a new hard
A lot of people answered. They all said that I need a NFS server.
There are different software for that (one free, the rest not free) :
SAMBA (free) (sunfreeware.com, samba.org)
SHARITY ( http://www.obdev.at/Products/Sharity.html)
Solstice NFS Client 3.2
PC Netlink http://www.sun.com/interoperability/netlink/
I chose Samba.
Thank to all who responded.
