    Try the links below to see if you can use the connection info for the Mono Project.  If your RDBMS (relational database managment systems) is Oracle use the trick we used at a Bank I worked for install a client on a Windows box and connect to Oracle will not know the difference.  We had Oracle 9i 64bits running on IBM AIX 64bits but all connection was through Oracle client on Windows 2000 32bits server.  Hope this helps.

    I am not sure why you need to access Unix shell. ASP.NET runs on IIS on a Windows Server. You can validate accounts on the Unix network by invoking authentication service that the network provides from C# (say, by calling a Web service running on a Unix box).

    If you want functionality similar to ASP.NET on Unix server, you can look at Mono project.
