You aren't exactly following the instructions.

That should be:
Code:
# rm obj Makefile
# ln -s Makefile.i386_gcc Makefile
# ln -s i386 obj
# /usr/ccs/bin/make

Oh ok. That worked. Thanks! The driver is installed, it is on DHCP. Now I need to get the ethernet on the Ultra 5 working. I will post any problems if I encounter any.

How do I find out if Solaris 9 already is working with the ethernet hardware? I see nothing in

Code:
ifconfig -a
Just the lo0 device or something. Is that the ethernet device or something else. How do I find out what driver I need, if I need one. Thanks.

I tried that, but still just shows the lo0 device. Will the Sun Device Detection tool work on solaris 9?

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:

Code:
# 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:

Code:
# /usr/sbin/ndd -set /dev/hme instance 0
# /usr/sbin/ndd -get /dev/hme link_status
0
#
Seeing that 0 there, I guess is saying that there is nothing going on. Any help here? Oh, and I also did:

Code:
# ifconfig hme0 plumb
# ifconfig hme0 192.168.1.103
# ifconfig hme0 up
# ifconfig -a
And there was the hme0 on 192.168.1.103.

Did I set something up wrong?

Setting the same IP address on both sides isn't going to help the communication to occur.
Are you using a crossover cable ?

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?

It's going to be tougher with Windows.

I can't help if you fail to answer to my previous comment too.

A straight cable might not work depending on the NICs.

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.

As I wrote, not using a crossover cable may be a show-stopper, and using it could not work too.

Up to you. I never suggested to wipe it out.

Dual boot is a good option if you need Windows too.

The first and mandatory step is having both machines able to communicate over that cable.

Yes.

Okay. I will install solaris on another hard drive.

The only problem is that Windows doesn't boot with Solaris Express b57 on my computer. Maybe I should install Solaris 5/08 instead.

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.

Will Ubuntu work with this networking thing? Just curious. I may install it, but I am installing Solaris 10 5/08 on another hard drive anyway.

Two machines with the same IP on the same network cannot communicate with each other. Solaris put the interface down when it detects such a violation.

It should. Can you describe the issues you had ?
Quote:

Build 90 would be a better choice.

You were probably close to do it when you uninstalled the OS.

Ok. Well, I guess I will install Solaris 10 5/08 or Solaris Express build 90 when I get some blank DVDs.
