I think the devices on both machines are working properly, but they might not be properly setup I would guess, because on my express machine:
# snoop -P -d nfo0
Using device /dev/nfo0 (non promiscuous)
And won't show it doing anything when I try to access the internet off of the ultra 5. The express machine is using the nfo driver. And it is up, set with the IP 192.168.1.103. The Ultra 5 is set to 192.168.1.103 also, and the cable is connected to each computer. Both ethernet devices are up, but no responding communication. The ultra 5 was already set up:
I just connected a regular ethernet cable to the ultra 5 from my express machine. I am now on Windows, no more express. So the ultra 5 needs to get internet from my windows machine. I only went back to windows because I have this Sun here, which means I probably can install Solaris 10 on it later. There is just a regular ethernet cable connecting the computers. The ethernet hardware is ready on both sides. How do I set this up? The windows side, will let computers use the internet off of it, so, I think that the windows side is ready. What about the ultra 5?

Which comment would you like me to answer? I am not using a crossover cable, if that is what you mean. Should I install Solaris again on this machine instead? I can run Solaris and Windows on if it would be easier for you. Can you give me some steps, if you have enough information to give me any, on how to set it up? Thanks.
You were using the same IP address on both sides of the cable.
Up to you. I never suggested to wipe it out.
Okay. I will install solaris on another hard drive.
Dual boot is a good option if you need Windows too.
The only problem is that Windows doesn't boot with Solaris Express b57 on my computer. Maybe I should install Solaris 5/08 instead.
The first and mandatory step is having both machines able to communicate over that cable.
I know that. But the hard part for me is trying to even get it working at all. I think I have used the internet off of another computer before with a regular ethernet cable that I set up, but with Windows to Windows.
