How to connect to internet from Solaris 2.6?

I have a workstation which is installed with Solaris 2.6 and it is connected to a IP network.
I can ping the gateway IP from my workstation, but everytime when I ping a IP which is not in our segment, it don't know go though the gateway to found the IP address.
Hoe can I do?
Please Help!

look at your subnet mask.. if it's wrong, you wouldn't get any traffic through the gateway..

check the man pages on "ifconfig" to determine how to set the subnet mask..

chances are you should be using 255.255.255.0


good luck,

for setting the netmask, it would be something like


   ifconfig -a netmask

when netmask  breaks out and relies on /etc/netmasks to contain the masks you want for your networks..


see the man pages for netmasks and ifconfig

for changing the gateway(s), use the route command to add or delete active gateways..

use   netstat -r  to deteremine current gateways in use..

see man pages for  route and netstat for complete descriptions of the commands..



eg
    128.32.0.0   255.255.255.0

would use the 255.255.255.0 mask on the 128.32 network..
