Hi I'm trying to transfter files between my XP box and my Solaris server.
The SunFire V100 was configured as a standalone machine ( I do not want to connect it to the Internet for the time being). Do I need to be on a network with access to the internet?
I am using a Serial B connection to a DB-9 adapter which allows me to use a USB connection (My machine is a VAIO and does not have a serial port)
I am able to access the machine via Hyperterminal and logon to the console. When I try and use the Hyperterminal SEND FILE option I tried everything in the list : XMODEM, YMODEM, KERMIT. ZMODEM etc, but nothing worked.
I tried to do an ftp but it did not recognise the hostname even though I can connect via Hyperterminal.
I did a quick web search - apparently I may need to have a UNIX program that runs one of the protocols above, but I cannot intall these programs if I can't even transfer the installation files!!!!
Could someone please help me with the possible options?
