Communication between Unix and NT

We have multiple users running Unix and NT apps that need to communicate both ways.
I guess, ftp would be 1 way to do it; is there anything better ?

Source Code would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance,

How/Why exactly do you want them to communicate?  For file transfers?  If so, you could look into Samba - http://au1.samba.org/samba/

I agree with leew, Unix and NT can communicate in 50 different ways, if you specify your task, we can help you from there.

Ok, one Unix app needs to pass some parameters to Win NT app,
then some other Win NT app needs to pass some parameters to Unix app, etc.

I guess, file transfer would be 1 way to do it ...

If you use plain old TCP/IP protocols for networking then just have each app listen on a port and have the other app send data on that port.  Just like web browsers and web servers use port 80 - doesn't matter if one is on NT and the other Unix or both are on the same platform.

In VB you'd use a Winsock control and assign it ports to communicate on.  On unix, it depends how you're going to do this.  Probably C++, but I'm not familiar with the procedures in that.  (I've played around in VB with this, writing my own mail application for testing, but that was some time ago...)
