I was recently given a pair of Tatung COMPstaion U computers (they are
an odd Sun clone: they have the SBus and 50-pin ScSi of the
SparcStaion/Ultra1/Ultra2 generation machines, but the processor of an
Ultra5/Ultra10). I installed Solaris 9 on it with support for both 32
and 64 bit processing in end-user mode.
I have the machine set to use DNS as its name-resolution process (set
when I installed), and I specified 4 different nameservers (on 3
different networks/subnetworks) in resolv.conf. In nsswith.conf, I
have the hosts line set to 'hosts: files, dns'. I have a default
When I use /usr/sbin/nslookup, I am able to resolve names to ip
numbers, but /usr/sbin/ping and the netscape browser that came with
the system are not able to resolve hostnames to ip numbers.
I have tried manually adding an entry into hosts, and am able to
browse to it and am able to ping it successfully.
I am sure I have overlooked something trivial.
Have I missed something? Advice is appreciated.
