Ftp is the easiest way to do this. Most often, the Unix computer will have the FTP server running and all you have to do is connect to it from your NT box.

Open a command prompt under NT and type:

ftp 34.132.123.243

for example. To get more info on ftp, simply man ftp. If you need more help, please post back.

Hi

Ftp from your unix machine to the NT machine or from your NT machine to your UNIX m/c.
If you are ftping from your unix m/c to NT m/c then the commands are
ftp ip address of your NT m/c
send filename or put filename

If you are ftping from your NT m/c to your UNIX m/c Then the commands are
ftp ip address of your UNIX m/c
get filename

Hope this helps

Please keep in mind that if you are FTPing from the Unix box to the NT box, you must have a FTP daemon/server running on the NT box! Most Unix boxes come with some sort of FTP daemon built into them which is easily configured.

Good lord....I can sorta understand what's written here. But just trying to get a clearer picture of what's written here. On a network and from an NT pc command line one can type ftp ip adresss and get a connection to another box (client/server). You then type put location/filename filename. Would those two commands mean that you have connected to a UNIX 'box' (from an NT m/c) and trying to transfer a file to a certain directory?

If so than the get and put commands above should be reversed. Y/N?. I'm using NT m/c and that's what i type inorder to put files into certain directories. Do i make sense (maybe not huh)?

Yes, let's try from your NT machine:
Open a CMD Window

At the prompt, say the "C:\" prompt:
C:\>ftp unix.machine.org

Then you will be asked your username and password at the unix machine (you have to have username and password on that unix machine). Typically they will prompt with the machine name, then
the username prompt, type your username, and then password.
If you succeed with the authentication, you will get an ftp prompt,
something like this:
ftp>

Of course when the authentication fail, you also get message telling that your name or password is wrong. If this is the case, just type in the ftp prompt:
ftp> user <your-username-at-unix-machine>

Then once, again you will be asked to enter your password.

Then you can put your file to that unix machine, say "myfile.txt". Type in the ftp prompt:

ftp> put myfile.txt

To quit, just type at the ftp prompt:

ftp>bye

Note:
There's some issues when ftp'ing files from NT to unixes, when you want to transfer plain text files, you need to type this:
ftp>ascii

But when transferring binary files, better don't forget to add
ftp>binary

between your authentication and your first 'put' or 'get'. Otherwise you may get a cluttered text files, or truncated binary files.


Happy ftp'ing,
