I use NFS Maestro to link to a unix drive on a pc, but now I need the opposite.

I need a drive for example /dataonnt in unix so that i can save files to the nt pc in scripts.

Who knows ?

AFAIK Maestro can be setup to be a NFS server on NT, then mount works as usual on UNIX.
Otherwise there is no way except your UNIX flaviour supports SMB.

If your only aim is to transfer files between the two systems, easiest way is via a batch file using "FTP", this could be run from either end, and avoids all problems of crossmounting filesystems.

 Or if you want the file transfers to be secure,
 set up cygwin on your Windows systems (www.cygwin.com)
 and use it.
