How can we share a AIX drive on to Windows 2012 server?


How can we share a AIX drive on to Windows 2012 server. or vise versa.

Note: Not using NFS/CIFS/samba. (*we are not able to use samba/NFS/CIFS for some reason)

Requirement: How to have real time file sharing over the network between Windows and UNIX

Do you guys have any solutions for this requirement ? please suggest

There is something called "IP Switch" (File transfer - WS_FTP server). You have to buy the product (Its not free).

It uses sftp protocol, its for Windows to/from UNIX machines.

I have it running in my environment, and its so far so good.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the prompt response. i will look into IP switch option. just one more question, as you guys are already using it.

Can we have real time file sharing over the network between Widnows and UNIX. i mean, is it just like NFS ? please clarify.

thank you

Let me reiterate my words here. (I read your post in other sense).

You can use sftp from command line to copy the file.

I was considering a whole different tangent here.

Thats ok. Thanks for your response. Actually we implemented NFS between AIX - AIX & AIX - windows earlier.
but for some reason we should not use NFS,samba. so looking for alternative method.
