connecting to internet

I have installed Solaris 8.0 and want to find out how can I go in and change my network setup and external IP setup. At the moment system running but I can not connect to the internet. But my lan card shows that I am on the network. I also get some advice that I should check the $Socks but how do I do this


You need to bind your ethernet card to your IP drivers using the <b>ifconfig</b> command. You need to tell the kernel how to route packets using the <b>route</b> command. You need a good book on TCP/IP networking. Last year, one was recommended and we have put all last years recommendations in one place:

The book you want is the one with the crab on the front. This is the best TCP/IP networking book and the one most recommended to beginners.
