Hi all,

I need to apply a patch in the database on a remote server using putty. I have only applied patches on windows so far. I am using putty to access the remote Unix server. I downloaded the patch from metalink and its a winzip file. Can anybody tell me how I can unzip the file in the remote server using putty??

I tried ftp IP
put c:\p4689959_9207_SOlARIS64

And after this I could see the file in the remote server. But I dont know if it got transferred properly, also please somebody tell me how I can unzip this winzip file in putty.
I tried unzip p4689959_9207_SOlARIS64, its giving me the below error:

unzip: cannot find zipfile directory in one of p5382965_92070_WINNT

Yes I did go through the Read me file.But it just tells how to apply the patch. Before that I need to unzip the file on the remote server using putty. I dont know how to do that. Help really appreciated. Thank you.

If I'm not wrong, your UNIX server should have UNZIP.EXE in order to successfully unzip this file. If it doesn't have it, you're out of luck. Unless, of course, you unzip it on your MS Windows machine and then transfer the patch over the FTP. Just don't forget to enable BINARY mode before transferring file(s).

PUTTY is just a terminal emulator; you don't HAVE TO use it - if there's another one, more user-friendly which, for example, supports FTP (having a GUI environment, possibly), why not? We use Reflection and it offers FTP Client which is Windows Explorer -like (and easy to use). There are also many free FTP clients available - try to set up any of them in order to transfer the whole tree (directories and their files). FTP (command-line one) supports multiple files transfer - MGET and MPUT, but I'm not sure that it'll take care of nested directories.

I have a real, real real diificult time understanding how BOTH the patch number (p4689959 <==> p5382965) AND operating system (SOlARIS64 <==> WINNT) can transmute from one to the other by invoking unzip as seeming indicated by the two line above.

Too bad OP seemingly reports what he thinks is reality instead of using cut & paste to actually allow us to see what REALLY happened.

Is the supposed *nix box actually a 64-bit Solaris system (SPARC or x86)?

It will never happen.
Seems the OP has literally taken the words.
As Littlefoot kindly explained,
Putty is just an ssh tool to tunnel into a remote server.
One has to ftp the zip file to the remote server using scp/sftp.
Then use putty to login and unzip the file.
