Solaris 10 x86 - Update Manager Fails to Connect

Hi LQ. I'm working on a fresh install of Solaris 10 x86 on a VM in ESXi 4.1. In fact, this post is being done by the machine in question. I'm not familiar with Solaris at all. I'm trying to get the Update Manager working, but it keeps telling me that my interenet connection is down, when it is clearly not. My network interface is configured correctly, DNS works, firewall is diabled, etc. I'm out of ideas.

Hmmm sounds like a proxy problem....
In solaris, you have to configure the update manager.
It could be locked behind a proxy, or just lost (trying to connect to a resource that is no longer unavailable). Fortunately, their is an update configuration manager, if you reference the page I linked it will give you a troubleshooting process.
