how to transfer output file to windows network drive from sas/unix/citrix env.

     I need to automate the following.

1. Using sas i create an output file.  I need to transfer that file into 1) sharepoint or 2) network drive that i've access to using my windows user id and password.

2. Using sas in citrix, aix unix environment. sas version 9.3.  Please note that i use the windows id to connect to the sas also.

My question is   Is there a way i can connect from sas unix environment to windows network to transfer the file?

Yes. You need SAMBA to map a network drive from UNIX to your windows desktop .But you need the help of UNIX administrator .

Or you can use FTP service to achieve the same thing if your UNIX opened it.

You may also need the help of your Unix admin (or general network admin) for the FTP.  In our shop, the SAS servers only have outgoing FTP enabled and ditto for the Windows workstations.  We have an FTP host to managing the incoming type traffic, and that requires a user account.
