    Accepted Solution

    Samba is the one you need to install.
    However, to build Samba for SCO UNIX products may require significant patching of Samba source code. It is much easier to obtain binary packages directly from SCO.

    Besides, check the following URL for more details (step-by-step):

    Assisted Solution

    wesly_chen is correct about 1 way: his way you can access the files on the Unix host from Windows Host.

    But in case u need it vice a versa, its even easier:

    1. Configure a share folder on Windows 2000
    2. Mount it as  smbfs under some folder in Unix.
    The exact syntax for that is:

    mkdir /mnt/smb

    mount -t smbfs  -o username="UNISYS02\Administrator",passwd=Alpha //unisys02/shares  /mnt/smb

    df -h

    NOTE: This is possible easily on linux, I am a little in doubt regarding Unix , but give it a shot.
