I have to extract huge sets of 8mm tapes recorded earlier to do some calculation.
and I only have 2 Sun Machines (very old version, Ulta5 and SPARCStation 20) and 2 tapes drive in my company.
The ultra 5 is connecting to a tape drive but it doesn't have c compiler and the tape driver is not allowed to move. So that I cannot write c program to extract data from tape drive,
What I think is using the SPARCStation 20 to mount the tape driver on ultra5 and read the tapes, meanwhile I am extracting data on the local driver on the SPARCStation 20.
If the tape drive is connected locally and I can read the content of the tape with c program,
But how to do the for remote case?
Having reference to the following but it didn't stat the anwer clear
Waiting for your suggestion!
