We have installed a WinNT 4.0 Network using TCP/IP. Customer has Win95 on the PC workstations.  Now he wants to add his Sun Workstations (About 5, Solaris) to the NT Domain.  How do we do this (We are NOT Unix Experts)?? And is there any resource on the net that can help. BTW: I have tried to find a solaris consultant in the Central New Jersey area but can't, if you know of any it would be much appreciated!

As far as I know, you can't set up the Solaris boxes such that they can be seen in Network Neighborhood.  However, you can still set them up to have connectivity (e.g., telnet and ftp).

Unless you have routers, you'll want to put the Solaris boxes on the same subnet as the PCs.  In Solaris, simply run ifconfig to set the IP address and subnet mask.  The Solaris boxes should then be able to ping, telnet, and ftp to each other as well as the Win95 workstations.

I believe there is also NFS software available for Windows which would allow you to mount remote filesystems across platforms.  I can dig this out if you're interested.

Thanks! The ifconfig command is what I was looking for. I would be interested in the names of any cross platform NFS software if you get the chance.  Thanks again.

Check out the following URL for Win95 NFS software:

Of course, the Sun machines already have it.

Good luck!
