Connection from Unix to Windows 2008 using RCP

Hello:

We are in the process of migrating our database server from a Windows Server 2003 to a Windows 2008 R2 machine.  In the windows 2003 machine we are running a RSH Daemon called Winsock RSHD/NT to allow RCP connections from our Unix system so that our Unix system can copy files to our Windows 2003 system.  Now, it appears that Winsock RSHD/NT will not work on Windows 2008.

My question for you geniuses out there is how can I use RCP within unix to copy files to my Windows 2008 machine?

hi

the older Windows services for unix download may still run on 2008.  this is actually a pretty reliable and flexible piece of software.  i've used it for many flavors on unix/linux.  don't know if it will work for you but easy enough to try.  quick install, create a share (volume) and mount it from unix, set permissions and you are done.

also, can you create a samba share on unix and have windows pull from it instead?

We have installed Microsoft Services for the network file system (NFS) in Windows Server 2008 R2 but I am not sure what I need to do from Unix to copy files to a specific folder on that Windows Server. I was trying to use rcp -pr from Unix to copy a file to that server but I get "Connection refused" message.
Any ideas why?

i haven't used the 2008 version but in the older version you would create a share, share and set the permissions.  the default is read only so you have to change it.
