First - for http try Apache Web Server - it's free and works great.
http://www.apache.org/ has all the information you need to get
started and the software for download.

Next, an ftp binary comes with Solaris. If you want to use a different one, try wu-ftpd. Get it at http://www.wu-ftpd.org/ - again, it' free and easily configured. If you want to use the ftp daemon that comes with Solaris but want to set up anonymous ftp, go to www.sun.com/bigadmin/faq . Click on the Networking tab and then the FAQ on anonymous ftp. It will tell you what to do to make a secure ftp server.

As far as connecting the two systems - what else do you have? A router, hub, firewall? If you just want these two to talk to each other, you could connect them with a null modem line and configure the ports with normal non-Internet IP addresses (172.16 to 172.32 or others ). Hope this helps.
