Andy, you can use the `uname -a` command.

I'm not sure what you want to accomplish -- static routes are different than
IPCHAINS forwarding entries. Do you want to allow access to the machine for
incoming connections to sendmail and other programs? Do you want to allow
the machine access to other machines for sendmail and other programs? Do
you want to forwarding incoming connections for sendmail and other programs
from one machine to another (called port fowarding)? Please keep in mind:
ipfwadm has been replaced by the `ipchains` command in recent times. The
commands used for ipchains are somewhat similar, and there is a great FAQ
available at the following location:
Static routes, on the other hand, can be added to the kernel routing table
to help define routing tables.
