SUNWpcnfd  (pcnfsd daemon)

Hi,
I'm using Solaris 7 and I'm investigating whether TotalNET Advanced Server (TNAS) would be benificial to me so I installed it from the Easy access Server 2.0 CD.
I also installed the Solstice NFS Client 3.2 on a win '95 PC.
I believe I still need a pcnfsd daemon running on a sun server ?
Documentation tells me I can use a package called "SUNWpcnfd" to install this daemon. It also says I should find it on the Easy Access server CD (and a Solstice Network client cd which I don't have)

I can't find it anywhere.
If I can just be pointed to where it is I can add easy enough with the 'pkgadd' command.

If you need diskspace/fileaccess and printeraccess to/from the Solaris machines I would suggest going Samba instead.
That way you dont need a clientside on the PC:s since it works with smb.
It is free on the net and on the Bonus Pack CD:s.
