I need to setup a router to connect two Solaris LANs.
I know that I need two network interfaces in the router.
The first one in a Sun workstation is le0.
Which port on a Sparc20 or Sparc5 do I use to install a
second network interface. Also, if this router will link
two physical ethernet networks, to which of the two network
Hubs will this router be connected physically?
What hardware (SBUS Card) do I need to setup the second
network interface?
Thanks for your time!

To set up a router, you need two network interfaces in the same machine.  If you want to use a SS/5 or SS/20 as a router, you'll need to install another interface.  Sun makes an SBUS card with an ethernet port and a scsi port; that's probably what you'll need.  Once you get the card installed and working, you'll have an le1 to go with your le0.  Hook one up to one hub, and the other up to the other.  As I recall, Sun's startup scripts automatically run routed if there are two (or more) interfaces, so all you probably have to do is add a new file in /etc called hostname.le1, and make sure that the name you give there has the right address for the second interface card.  It's pretty common practice to use names like "computer-le0" and "computer-le1" for the interface names -- that way, it's easier to keep 'em straight.
