home networking

I have a machine that is win98 and a machine that is sun 8. I have a dailup and I want the sun's machine and the win98 machine to see each others file and get each others files, and how do I get the net on the sun machine when the dail up is on the win 98 machine.

You will need to setup samba on the solaris machine
to share files betwen the boxes. Check out www.samba.org for more info on that.

Im not sure if you can use a windows98 machine as a internet nat/gateway for the solaris box. Try asking that in a windows forum.. windows98 aint so cool when doing stuff like that.. Smilie

Hi
To share internet using Win98, you need to have a gateway program like: wingate. Go to www.tucows.com, you can find a shareware version there.

To share network files on win98 you need to set File and Printer Sharing utility installed in the network option.

To share network file on Unix, you need to set up Samba.

You also have to set up the workgroup and IP address of the 2 machines correctly so they can see eachother.

On Unix, you can use mount to connect to a network drive. Do a man page on mount.

This are the information so you can get a start. Let me know if you need more info.

Hope this would help
