Connect o unix servers from Fedora Core 2

Hi All,
I have recently installed fedora core 2 on my laptop (dual boot). Its working fine. We use Solaris at office for our application servers and most of the time the development is done on Windows by connecting to Solaris using Samba.

I was wondering if I can mount my home folder on Solaris to a folder on linux with write access so I can use Linux for developing my applications. Our development does not need Windows so I thought why not work in Linux.

I can telnet to our servers but during development it would be easy I can see all my files in a folder rather than ftp'ing it every now and then. Hopefully I am clear with my question (How do I see my home folder on UNIX server in Linux).

Any help is appreciated.

I have not done this before, but I know that NFS works very fine between UNIX-UNIX and Linux-Linux. I am sure it wil work between UNIX-Linux. Hopefully it may work without any problems, but as I said, since I have not done this before, I do not know what kind of problems you may have.

The following is the 1st result from google search "nfs linux solaris" tells that it is good thing to do.

Good luck

if samba services are running on the Solaris box, you could use smbclient to mount them anywhere on your filesystem, right? Permissions (writeable) would be determined at the smb sharpoint..

Thank you all for the input that you have given.

Would you please give me an example of how to mount unix folders using smbclient. Samba is running on my machine.
