I have just installed solaris 2.5.1 and am trying to configure the network. I have set the /etc/defaultrouter file to the router, and I can now see the internet ok. But I can't get any name resolution, even after adding 2 dns servers to /etc/resolv.conf (syntax nameserver <ip addr>). Is there something else I need to do ? Thanks...
