Does anyone know how to setup dual nics on OpenIndiana?
What I would like to do is have Internet on pc2.

For dual nics, the simplest way would be to disable physical:nwam and enable physical:default, then configure both of your interfaces, one with dhcp and the other one with a fixed address. Use ipadm for that. Fixed address too on the pc2 side. Finally, add either a web proxy if only web access is required or configure ip forwarding and nat for full access.

How about if I want to setup an openindiana box that provides squid transparent proxy, full access (other than HTTP) and NAS?
