I have myself in a predicament.
I have an Ultra 60 with Solaris 9 that has been up and happy for many
months. I physically attached a SCSI external tape drive, bounced it,
and now I can not connect to it. I do not have access to it via its
framebuffer. So I am trying to hook up using a Win box and cross-over
I know the ip address it thinks it was before I restarted the machine.
I used to be able to ssh or telnet to it. Let's call the ip address:
After setting my Win box to 22.214.171.124 and linking the cross-over
cable, I can successfully ping the Sun box at the address above. But if
I try to telnet or ssh to 126.96.36.199, I get:
"Connecting To 188.8.131.52...Could not open connection to the host, on
port 22: Connect failed."
I have tried various ports, and no love....same error message, but with
a different port number at the end. What else could I try in order to
get a shell into this box and fix the network configuration?
