BEGIN NEWBIE QUESTION
We have an HP-UX machine with a tape drive and a Sun Solaris machine without one. We would like to access the tape drive from the Solaris machine as if it is part of shared file system (e.g. as if it is just a directory).
Previously, we extract from the tape and placed it on a temporary directory then we telnet or ftp from the HP to get the actual data. This is getting too cumbersome and inefficient.
We know this is possible but we're just stepping up our UNIX experience.
