The hotjava browser works fine for downloading the tgcware packages.
I successfully installed sshd with dependencies and a few other
toys. A reboot after installing sshd is all that is needed to
automatically start up prngd, generate initial keys etc. Thank you
Mike for the pointer to the treasure trove.
The FTP command in Solaris 2.6, 7, and 8 doesn't even support
passive mode FTP, so even assuming you set up an FTP server on
your Windows host it wouldn't work. But you can set up SSH on
Solaris 2.6 if you have the proper packages. There are a lot of
new packages out there on this site:
I would recommend getting the wget package for sure, since
then you can more easily download whatever else you want from
this site. In order to install SSH you'd have to get the openssl
and openssh packages (and maybe other packages like iconv and
readline, definitely the prngd package for random numbers) -
maybe you should just download that entire folder from that site
and put it all into an ISO file and attach it.
I actually just found this site in a google search so I'm not
sure how their SSH packages need to be set up (aside from the
usual pkgadd) but once you get it installed and running, then in
the QEMU host you can direct port 22 to it and it will be easier
to get files off and on.

The bridge and tap are on the host. Sorry I
missed the part about the windows host - I don’t know how to do a
bridge and tap on Windows, others here may chime in.
I brought up a Solaris 2.6 Qemu guest on opensuse tumbleweed
- it does not come with a ssh daemon, only telnet is standard.
So your options might be reduced to FTP from your windows host
(assuming you can get to your guest over some network setup
equivalent of tap) or burning CD images to attach to your guest,

for the response.
trying to create the bridge using the ip command. But
my solaris shell says ip command is not found. What
should I do to resolve this? Any pointers will be much

I followed the steps in the link
and launched Solaris 2.6 as guest having Windows as
host. Now I want to copy files from host Windows to
guest Solaris. Can you please guide on how to transfer
files between the host and guest using QEMU?
is now KLA!
Learn more at
Enable sshd on Solaris if available and not enabled,
forward port 22 in qemu command line and scp files over.
My preference would be to do a proper bridge from your
NIC and a tap interface for qemu's networking so that
the Solaris VM is a full fledged node on your network.
