Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am experiencing a technical problem that I cannot resolve with the available threads or by internet searches. This is the first time I've installed Solaris 10 on my ultra45 and I'm having an internet connectivity issue.
I'm connected to a DLINK DSL-G604T modem/router and can ping addresses both external and local addresses including the gateway and DNS but I cannot connect to the internet via the browser.
# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=2001000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4,VIRTUAL> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
bge0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
inet 10.1.1.245 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 10.1.1.255
# cat /etc/inet/netmasks
# The netmasks file associates Internet Protocol (IP) address
# masks with IP network numbers.
# network-number netmask
# The term network-number refers to a number obtained from the Internet Network
# Information Center.
# Both the network-number and the netmasks are specified in
# "decimal dot" notation, e.g:
# 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.0
The DNS service returned a bogus reply. If it is implemented by the modem/router, that's indeed where to investigate. You should also look to your ISP DNS, assuming this is where your router takes its information from.
