I need to upload a file from a Win 98 machine to a unix server.  I would like to do this within a batch file.  

I'm aware of the rcp.exe command which can copy files from an NT machine to a Unix server.

What's the easiest way to achieve this on my Win 98 machine?

Thanks.

Since I assume you are on an NT network connecting to a UNIX box as an app or file server, you should be able to use ftp to transfer files back and forth between your Win98 client and the UNIX machine - or you could map a drive letter to the UNIX machine via UNC name.

yes I will agree. Using the FTP protocol is the easiest and fastest (that I know of) for automation file.
I have done the exact same thing at my work. I have batch files that will connect to my Unix machine and transfer files to and from my local machine and even other networked servers.
If you need help with the ftp commands let me know and I'll send you a sample of what I use

I'm glad I was able to help you, but oops I forgot to mention one thing...I believe you may need an NFS (Network File System) mount on the UNIX box - this can be done with 3rd party software one example I believe is a program called Samba.  UNC name should work as they are universal, but an NFS mount might offer different or more powerful options?  You may want to check into it - I don't work too much with such NFS UNIX mount software - just found this out through researching into your question.  Tks!
