Wooo. Speedy or what. My thanks go to larry.garrett and Jez Ahl + others who
are no doubt telling me the same thing.
The Netra ethernet interfaces are dmfe0 and dmfe1
Thanks all

Greetings Sun Managers

I have a Netra X1 (history unknown - no cdrom) which has Sol 8 on it but
cannot see it's ethernet
interfaces. When I connect to the serial port, on boot I get:-
SunOS Release 5.8 Version Generic_108528-09 64-bit

ifconfig: plumb: eri0: Bad file number

errno 3, unix 0

Hostname: harry
The system is coming up.  Please wait.


ifconfig -a gives me
ifconfig -a
mtu 8232 index 1
        inet netmask ff000000

but no eri0 or eri1 ports. When these ports are
plugged into a hub however the link light becomes
active and flickers. 

Is this a hardware prob or something simpler?

Will summarize.
