I assume that you can telnet or ssh to the m/c to login.

Then

cd /usr/include/sys

more ino.h
more inode.h
cd fs
more s5filsys.h
more s5inode.h

SSH into the box

You can use the program "putty.exe" (search for it on google) to connect from Windows computer to linux via SSH ( as long as the linux computer is accepting connections via ssh )

Use a text editor ( like vi, pico or vim )
vi filename
pico filename
vim filname

in vi\vim press "i" or INSERT to start editing the file
to exit from vi or vim press ESC and type ":q" [press enter]
:wq [press enter] to save and exit
:q! [press enter] to quit without saving

"man vi" for more information about vi

If you want just view it use more:

cd /usr/include/sys  (or the dir it is in)
more HTFS.h

If you want to edit it use vi editor:

vi HTFS.h

What is not working?

What OS do you use?

How do you access the m/c?

What exactly you want to do with the file? The word access is general.

Ok

Please run the following command to find the location of the file:

find /usr/include -name HTFS.h

This will give you the full pathname to the file

you may then take this path and use cd to go to that dir then run

more HTFS.h

I noticed that the file name is in capital letters, if you don't find it try small letters for the file name.
