I need to access the Shared Folder that is offered by Virtual Box from Solaris 10, I heard that you have to mount it or something but I haven't succeeded with the info that I found from Google.

Or if there's a way I can download the file, I tried wget, but that doesn't seem to work on Solaris

Have you installed the Guest Additions in the Virtual Machine? You'll need them to use shared folders. – tombull89 Jun 30 '11 at 7:57

Install the Guest Additions into the VM instance you are running and then follow the instructions for mounting as documented in the "Shared Folders" section of the User Guide.
