copying directories from NT server to Unix server (solaris 5.8)

I need to copy around 30 directories (each directory include one or more text file(s)) from NT server to Unix server at one go. For doing this what are the privillages i should have in both NT and Unix server.

Please let me know which command i can use in shell prompt.

TIA.

you could use tar. im sure there is a version for that OS

example:

tar cvf filename.tar directoryname

then

put it on your solaris using ftp for example

at the other end,

tar xvf filename.tar

my colleague showed me a tool called "Far manager" (((http://www.softpedia.com/get/File-managers/FAR.shtml))).................if you customise that tool to map to the other server..then it works almost like windows explorer..using this tool, it is very easy to copy files or folders from one machine to another...

You could also try SAMBA. You can then share out the appropriate directory on the UNIX machine (i.e., where you want to copy the files to), and then just map the share under Windows as if it were a share on another Windows box and copy everything across.

Check out the SAMBA site for documentation - there's plenty available.

You can grab Solaris packages for SAMBA from Sunfreeware.
