my Sparc 5 running Solaris 7.  I just did a new install and I can't ping
anything.

I created a file in /etc called defaultrouter and put my ip address in
it replacing my last number w/ a 1.  I created another file called

text just the ip )
Finally I edited nsswitch.conf ( in /etc ) and put " dns " in front of "
files " on all the lines.

Any posts or e-mails would be greatly appreciated.

resources offered was:
http://www.tamahome.netnation.org/solaris/sol_athome.html.  I found a
whole bunch of threads on dejanews about it also.  It took several hours
to get right, but once I was done, I thought "That makes sense, why did
it take me more than half an hour?"

Good luck,
JJC

Are you sure that your default route is *.*.*.1?  I'm on RoadRunner, where the
subnet mask is not 255.255.255.0, so changing the last number to a 1 doesn't
guarantee that it'll be the default route.

That only works if the your 3rd number is the same as the gateway.

i.e.

24.24.24.000 - 24.24.25.255 is the range of IP addresses for the Subnet.

Check you DHCP software, it should output the gateway somewhere....you could
then take this information to update your routing.

1. Cable modem..56 modem dial up, 500K cable modem download stream...

I have 2 network cards and 1 modem in a Linux Box with RH6.
My cable modem uses the modem to start a PPP session, and the network card
is then hooked up to the VPN of the ISP.

I would like to setup a IP Masquraded Firewall to hook some of my other
boxes
behind the firewall.

I  cannot find a HOW-TO to setup the Linux box using this type of Cable
Modem.  I
have only found 2 way cable modems.  Can someone point me it the right
direction.

My problem is that I don't know how to get Linux connected, then also, how
do I configure
ipchains or ipfwadm to use the correct rule set.  Do I do the modem or the
network card.  The
network card has a static IP of 10.0.0.1 which is usally used for VPNs.  My
cable company
is of corse not supporting Linux, so I have to do it myself.  The PPP dialup
uses DHCP to
assign my address so I have dhcp setup.

Thanks in advance..

Aaron
