I need my SparcStation IPX running Solaris 2.4 to route data from the ethernet over a PPP dialup connection to the internet. I have a static IP address, if it makes a difference. I hear Solaris does this almost atomatically, but I couldn't find any help in my sysadmin books.

Not worth enough points.  It's not that hard but pretty involved for 50 points.

Easy 4 steps to solve your problems
1) man ppp
2) man aspppd
3) edit your /etc/asppp.cf
4) and refer to the Queen of Serial & Suns
Celeste's page at http://www.stokely.com 
(Home of Unix Serial Port & Sysadm Resources)

The ppp daemon should actually fix the local route table to make a static route toi via the net.
