I need some help with Solaris. I've recently got myself an old Ultra 1 Creator and installed Solaris 7 on it. I could try to install something newer, but I don't think that's the problem...
Well, I have an static IP address given by my ISP. I have a few machines connected to the Internet using a SMC router/firewall. The router generates internel IP address for every machine on the LAN.
I can connect to the Internet from any machine, except from my Ultra 1. I can, however, from my Ultra, ping any other machine on my LAN (including the router) but not outside. I can even open a browser from my Ultra/Solaris and change my router settings via Web-based interface. As soon as I try to open a page or ping somewhere else, I got an unknown host.
So far, I've spent a whole day trying to get this to work. This is what I did so far:
this file has my hostname
this file has two lines: wait 300 and primary
I've added my Primary and secondary DNS given by my ISP in two separated lines.
I made sure that the line "hosts: file dns" was in there.
I also re-run sys-unconfig plenty of times and rebooted even more times trying to get this right. Upon the configuration, there was one question that I was not sure, so I set to "none", it was about NIS+ service. Another one was about if my machine was a part of subnet, I said yes and setup my correct (and default) subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
netstat -rn | grep default returns the following:
default 192.168.2.1 UG 0 0
192.168.2.1 is my routers/firewall IP. I also tried to create a file called /etc/defaultrouter and put that number in there, no help. ifconfig -a returns the following (note, not paste-copy job)
What my ISP gives me:
static IP: 188.8.131.52
Above numbers are examples. Connection on my LAN is done by DHCP through a router/Firewall. If I go into my router settings through Web Interface, my Sparc/Solaris machine has an IP number (192.168.2.2) and it matches the one given by netstat.
Now, what should I do to get this to work? I've spend hours on IRC and Internet without success. Whereelse should I look at?
Before I start answering your questions, I'd like to thank you. I've read your posts here at Solaris and Java and found you a really valuable member, so I thank in the name of all other members that you've helped with solaris issues . Now, to the question:
From my U1 I can't access Internet at all. Trying to type an address at the web-browser hangs for a while, then returns host not found. Same goes with ping at the command line: hangs for a while, returns host not found error. However, from the U1, pinging any local machine, returns "is alive". From the webbrowser at my U1, I can hit my router (192.168.2.1) and change the settings.
Thank you very much jlliagre!!! It finally works. Well, it was my fault actually. I've double checked the /etc/resolv.conf (as you suggested) and I had only my DNS on it, without "nameserver". It's now up and running... can't wait to install bash or else I will insane without it
