What version of SAS? On SAS 9 you should be able to open an IOM
connection, assuming they haven't firewalled it. (That might also be
the problem with SAS/SHARE and ODBC/OLEDB).
If you don't have an NFS or SAMBA server, try HTTP, FTP, Telnet, SSH,
or even email. They must have _some_ sort of way of communicating
with the Unix box, basically you need to tunnel over that. (That
brings back memories of tunneling the zmodem protocol over VT100 to
some ancient DEC machines).
(Why does the un-helpfulness of the sysadmins sound so familiar?)
