Hi John,

Not too sure what m/c stands for (machine?) but I have a feeling that samba might be what you are looking for.  It will allow you to see your solaris partitions from your windows network.

http://www.samba.org/

If you are going to use it, the config file has a variable to expect encrypted or plain-text passwords.  Change it to want encrypted as this is what MS networking uses.

Dude, you can't see Solaris hosts in Network Neighborhood on Windows machines, 'cause that's proprietary M$ junk.  You would want that anyway, 'cause it just generates so much pathetic broadcast.  If you want to confirm you can "see" the Solaris machine from a Winblowz machine, just ping it.

Hi,
There was an utility for Solaris 2.6 to be viewed by windows client called Sun Soltice Network client 3.1. This will be installed in Windows client and it will create another view in network neighbourhood called "Soltice NFS clients" something like view netware servers after enable netware services .But in-order to use the resources from sun,you should enable the nfstab to add in the windows client hostname & IP. Anyway I'm not very sure about for solaris8.You may search using keywords like "Soltice Client" or "Sun Soltice"

Thanks & Regards
