TCP/IP aliases & ifconfig under Solaris

TCP/IP aliases & ifconfig under Solaris

Post by Thomas Jun » Fri, 30 May 1997 04:00:00


I have a netscape fasttrack web server runnning on my Solaris box. It
contains a few web sites.

For some reason, I installed a Lotus Notes Server and I would like to
use its web server (internal use only).

I created an alias with ifconfig (new ip address) and configured lotus
notes server to listen on that ip address ... but when I try to access
it, fastrack (the other one) replies....

How can I run this web server on a different IP address ?

Any answers would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance !!!

1. ifconfig -a hangs in solaris 9 under lot of tcp/ip traffic

When I run ifconfig -a it hangs and the assoicated kernel stack trace
is something like the following :-
      Has anyone else seen something similar ? Is there a solaris
patch that addresses this ?
