Hi all

I am trying to mount in my FreeBSD 6,2 box disk that are on a SCO System V
Openserver release 5

In SCO it says that the disks filsystem is HTFS.

If i try to mount from Fbsd says that "there is not external program for
this filesystem".

What I try is to mount them in order to backup there files.

Can I do something to mount them UNIX<->UNIX?

I have tried to mounting with mount_smbfs because the files are in a Samba
share, but when i use cp to backup files to my Fsbd box i get many page
errors and timeout. So i dont trust mount_smbfs too much.

A solution for this?

Yes, just use a backup client/system of your choice. Copying them to
windows is not the first choise, neither is mounting the disk on a
FreeBSD-Box. BTW: If you want to do something like this you should use
I would recommend a backup method that is native to SCO. I never used
it so I don't know what is available, but there should be something
like "dump". This will do a backup on the filesystem level and allows
incremental backups. There is at least a cpio available. So you create
some files containing your backups, and you can transfer them to a
remote machine...

Alternatively you could check wether there is a backup solution
available for SCO.
