Sun Advances File-Sharing with Windows
By chhandomay on Nov 20, 2007
Sun introduces new projects to improve file-sharing between Windows and OpenSolaris. The CIFS Server features software code that implements the common internet file system protocol, enabling Microsoft users to store files on an OpenSolaris system. Conversely, CIFS client enables OpenSolaris systems to act as CIFS clients in a Microsoft environment. The client stores and retrieves files on a Microsoft CIFS system, thus completing file-sharing capabilities between OpenSolaris and Microsoft environments.
