Zhu wants to reduce his network traffic when he sends the compressed
file to Solaris. I didn't read his question well enough, I see now. I
now have to admit that my 'shared-through-samba-unix-pipe' idea won't
help him either in reducing network traffic. Unskyld for wasting
precious bandwidth with my non-solution.

Regarding the Windows compressed folder: If you copy/ftp/whatever-you-do
the file from the compressed windows disk to the Solaris destination,
Windows will decompress the file for you before sending it over the
network. So, maybe I have to agree with you, you are confused, as I was
