First, if you have already downloaded it on your windows system, you could just transfer it over
to the Solaris system as is. Or you can download it directly from SunSolve to the Solaris system.

Usually, you need to be logged into SunSolve to get patches, so your best bet is likely to use a browser. Firefox comes bundled with Solaris 10. If it is really using FTP, you can get the wget command or curl, although curl is bundled with OpenSolaris and Solaris 11 express and not Solaris 10.

And of course, if it is ftp, you could use the FTP command.

If you don't have usb port on Solaris server, you can burn the patches on a CD/DVD for intallation. Or use Win SCP software on Windows to copy over.

to transfer the patches from Windows to Solaris Boxes use the windows native ftp tool or use the third party tools like CuteFTP, or WinSCP.  But Make sure that, ftp is enabled or you can use the ssh service to transfer the files.

to get the patches from sun solve website, you need to have a valid sun user ID, to download the patches.  Also you can download the patch cluster to update all the patches in the Box.
