Sharing unix drives from two unix systems

I have two SCO openserver systems, 1 in the US and 1 in the UK.
I am setting up a vpn to connect the two local networks that also have windows pc's on them.
Is there a way that either unix system can see the hard drive on the other unix system so that I can share data between them.
I run a cobol application on each and would like to be able to see files from the other system.

regards

Ron Grout
