Here is an easy alternative, if of interest.

and if they have the file system software

with FTPing, or libname engines, or connections.
If you do, then just create a drive map to
drive U: (or any unused letter) in Windows Explorer
and voila, datasets can reside either machine and
you can talk to both at the same time as if they
are all on your PC. e.g.
libname unx 'u:\tmp';
libname pc 'c:\temp';
Of course, catalogs are a different story.
They are platform dependent and have to be

Subject: How to use Unix SAS datasets in PC SAS?
My datasets are in UNIX SAS. I need to use them in PC SAS using FTP and
SAS/Connect. Is there anyone who can help me out with the step by step
procedure and with coding to do this job? I never used FTP or SAS
CONNECT Before. Thanks a lot for your time.
