I have a SCO Unix server behind my firewall.  The SCO address is 172.16.17.56 and the firewall address is 172.16.17.2.  I can access the internet with any Win95/NT workstation but can't access with the SCO.  What must be changed on the SCO?

check the above and the subnet mask etc,
also try to ping the local default route.

in my experience with these systems you need to do the following:

in the /etc/rc.d/....  (look for a file that contains ifconfig)

you need to add a line "route add default 172.16.17.X" where this is your local default route or gateway.

run netstat -rn to see if the route entry "default" is there, if not do the above and that should solve your problem.
