You already have one on your Windoze 98 box called "ftp".Quote:>I've got a client with an SCO Openserver 5.0.4. They have a dial-in modem

1. Open an MSDOS window.
You should get a login prompt. Login and password follows.
This is insures that brain dead Windoze doesn't default to converting
everything to ascii text.
4. Copy files from Unix -> Windoze with:
cd /where/you/hide/your/files (directory on Unix box)
!cd c:\windows\temp (directory on W98 box)
prompt (don't ask about every file)
mget *.dbf (download all the *.dbf files)
5. To copy from Windoze to Unix, just use:
instead of mget.
The big mistake is usually copying in the wrong direction. There's no
2nd chance or "are you sure?" prompt. Therefore, I suggest you practice
a bit before you proceed to "learn by destroying(tm)".
If this is too crude, there is WsFTP, PcCute, kermit, and such that will
also do network file transfers. If this is going to be a regular habit,
perhaps installing VisionFS or SAMBA on the Unix box will make life
easier. It will make Unix directories show up in Network Neighborhood as
shares. Copying can be done with *ANY* windoze or DOS copy program.
