Well, its the same steps required to have Win3.1 work across a routed
network connection to a Windows server, so its not like its Unix
specific, but by crossposting to a Unix group, you're much more likely
to get a usable answer IMHO :)
Since the Solaris machine can only talk TCP/IP, you'll have to make
Win3.1 talk TCP/IP. Unfortunatly, Win3.1 doesn't come with TCP/IP, so
you'll need to find/buy a TCP/IP stack for your Win3.1 system.
Before I get into that, you better make sure to know which version of
Windows you have, as there are very slight differences in Windows
around that version that guide your path. There are a total of 4
versions you may have.
Windows for Work Groups v3.1 (WFWG or WFW)
Windows for Work Groups v3.11 (WFWG or WFW)
Now, if you do happen to have WFWG v3.1 or v3.11, you're in a much
better situation than if you have plain Win v3.1 or v3.11. Microsoft
did release a mostly-usable TCP/IP stack that only worked in their
W4WG releases for free. This is available for download from the
web/site FTP site.
(ie. ftp://ftp.microsoft.com/bussys/clients/wfw/tcp32b.exe ).
If you indeed only have Windows v3.1 or v3.11, you are going to have
to update to WFWG in order to get any sort of drive mapping
capabilities, as the v3.1 or v3.11 of Windows does NOT even support it.
Microsoft really does still sell the upgrade package for WFWG v3.11,
but don't expect any retailer to actually admit it, or try to help you
out in getting some to sell to you..
