SUMMARY: Need network help

Thank you so much for the quick replies of the following managers:

From: Tham Huei Hwan <>
From: Steve Gray <>
From: "Frederic Piard" <>
From: (Amy Hollander)
From: (Tim Evans)
From: (Mary Verge X3067)
From: stern@sunrise.East.Sun.COM (Hal Stern - Distinguished Systems Engineer)
From: (Koen Peeters)

I checked the file /etc/hostname.le0 and it was empty. So I added the ip
address to the file /etc/hostname.le0 as Koen Peeters and Hal Stern suggested
and rebooted the machine. And voila, it works like a charm.

You guys are great.

Thanks again, Aline...

Original question:

> Dear Sun Managers,
> A customer sent us an SS10/40 for our testing purpose. It's a bare machine

> it without any formal training, so please be gentle.
> This is the part that I need your help. I want to bring it up to the network.
> I connected the AUI cable, did a ethernet and diag tests, everything went fine.

> Configuring le0...
> le0: auto-revarp failed: no RARP replies received
> ....
> setting default interface for multicast: add net gateway merridoc.mms
> .com: network is unreachable.
> Please help me to get it setup right. What other files are involved in Solaris2
> I only added the ip address to the hosts file.
> # Sun Host Database

> localhost
> merridoc
> Thanks, Aline...
