Solaris 2.4 Routing

Posted on 1997-05-25
Last Modified: 2013-12-23
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.

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