I have recently bought these two machines at home and would like to network them together.  I have the network cards installed and a cross over cable running connecting the two machines.

What steps do i need to take to reach my unix box from my windows desktop?

regards
Peter

Depends on what kind of access you want. If you do have ip running, you should be able to telnet and ftp to it. If you want to browse the folders on the sun solaris from the win2000 you will have to load some software like SAMBA, to allow this. here is an URL about samba for solaris. http://www.e-business.com/products/Samba.htm

Hope this helps

tonny is right in suggesting samba for drive sharing. Install samba with SWAT on Solaris, from sunfreeware.com. Keep posting if you have problems configuring it.

one quick question though,
i've learned that my sparc  comes with 10 Base-T on board.
is this ok or do i need to get a 10 / 100 Ethernet.

pete

If the NIC in the windows machine is a 10/100 card, it will probably work immidiately, but i have seen cases, where you must manually set the speed to 10 Mbit half duplex to make it work.
You'll know when you try it.
Just set ipaddress and subnetmask on both machines and try ping oneanother. If it doesn't work, set it manually to 10 MBit half duplex and try again.

Use the ipaddresses

(Windows 2000)
Address 192.168.0.1
Mask    255.255.255.0
Gateway (blank)

(Sparc)
Address 192.168.0.2
Mask    255.255.255.0
Gateway (blank)

I believe the command to be used on the sparc is ifconfig.

I don't have access to a unixbox at the moment, so i can't give you an exact command with parameters.
