Hi I have an SGI with Irix 6.5, I was wondering is there any way I can read and write to a win 98 computer in my network.  If so how?  Basically is software which will allow me to share a directory in win98 which can be seen in unix.  I am using samba to let the win98 computer read and right to my sgi, I just want to be able to reverse this process.  I was thinking there might be a way to even do this in samba but I am not very up on samba.

Thanks for any help.

You could use smbclient, which provides an ftp-like access to windows shares. It might be seen as a radical idea, but why not simply make the SGI the server for the shared data and let the win98 box access it through a Samba share. That way you only need network access in one direction. The SGI could get to the data off the local disk.

New version of samba have the command smbmount which can mount windows shares on unix.
