Access Unix through Windows Explorer

I am trying to access unix file systems through windows explorer without using Samba or similar products.

Is this possible - if so how?

simple answer is no.  Windows exporer talks SMB (unix version samba), unix can talk to other servers via nfs, which you can get for windows, but that is a 'similar product', only going the other way.  You can however access files on a unix server via an ftp explrer type program, there are many versions.  Would that do?

Why not Samba or "similar" products?  Are you trying to make things hard on yourself?
