On solaris: tar cf archive.tar /directory/to/transfer
On redhat: tar xf archive.tar
Run this both commands as root.
Make sure, that you have your redhat users with the same uids as on solaris box.
Additionally - I'm not sure, if you are able to transfer ACLs set on these files/directories.

I have tried that but am having problems with tar and long file names. Do you know if there is any way to tar regardless of file name length?
