Move a file from XP to Solaris and execute it

Specs: Windows XP
Hi,
I have to write a windows XP program, that would generate a Solaris Script, which would then be required to be transported to Solaris, then executed; the execution result then needs to be returned to the XP program.
For transporting the file i was thinking of following FTP (admins rejected it) or File share on Solaris using Samba; are there any other options avilable?
Also what options do i have for kicking off the script on the solaris box and getting the result back in XP

No Samba & no FTP? They need to hire a magician. I can't think of another way to do it.

Samba is an option but ftp is not

why would you want to generate a solaris script using a windows XP program?? If you have telnet /SSH enabled in your solaris server, then you can use scripting languages like Perl/Python with Telnet/SSH libraries to execute your solaris commands.

thats correct, but the busienss case is such that we have no other option;
Its basically for a code review tool, which the reviewers use in Windows and the tool generates deployment scripts, which are used to deploy changes onto solaris box
