Hi!

I have basicly two questions:
- how can I install mc or any kind of navigator onto solaris using ssh?
- how can I edit a file when I'm in on ssh? I cant seem to find any text editors.

Thanks,

B.

Hi MorganStanley,
Try using vi or emacs.

mc should be possible to compile on Solaris.


Cheers!

If you're using SSH from another Unix environment, you can display X11 applications on your local desktop. With any luck, SSH will magically forward the X11 traffic on the encrypted channel. Failing that, you would have to set your $DISPLAY environment variable correctly.

Assuming that X11 is working, type: "/usr/dt/bin/dtpad" for a text editor and "/usr/dt/bin/dtfile" for a filesystem browser. (neither of these are particuarly brilliant but they're better than nothing.
