I work in an insurance brokers and have been employed as the IT fix all problems person.
we have a unix server which runs this system called policymaster which i have managed to avoid using up to now.
my question is that i know for some reason have to load linux onto a pc in the office and connect it to unix server so i can read the data there.
ive used linux before and i understand its based on unix but i was just wondering if it is actually possible to connect the two together?
It shows how to do various functions on various flavors of Unix. For example, to determine your IP address.
As far as connecting to Unix boxes together, the simplest manner is NFS, or Network File System. Linux can also use Samba (as can other Unices) to connect to Windows file-sharing or to allow Windows machines to connect to it.
