Now I use Sun Solaris 2.6. I want to connect my machine to my ISP via modem.
Can someone tell me the details to do it?

This url will tell you everything you need to configure Solaris for ppp connection.


The document is for Solaris x86 but the information is still correct for Solaris 2.x. I used this documentation myself to configure Solaris 2.5 for ppp connection.
Some other useful documentation is featured on the SunSolve CDs if you have access to them particularly "Sun Service Tip Sheet for Sun PPP". Also the Solaris System Administration Answerbooks in Solaris are quite useful.
