I just added one more NIC to SUN Ultra II but can not seem to add it.
Here is ifconfig output
# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 8232
        inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
hme0: flags=863<UP,BROADCAST,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
        inet xx.xxx.xxx.xx netmask ffffff00 broadcast 161.69.56.255
        ether 8:dd:50:9d:e6:e0
And when I try
# ifconfig hme1 10.10.4.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
ifconfig: SIOCSIFNETMASK: hme1: no such interface

Now the question is how do I troubleshoot whther the card is ok. I did try net test at boot but it does not report hme1

Did you do a reconfigure boot after adding the card (boot -r at the prom prompt or "touch /reconfigure; reboot")? Oh yeah, does this card use an hme driver or something else?

Once Solaris knows about the card (via a reconfig boot) you can either simply create a /etc/hostname.hme1 file containing either a hostname (as found in /etc/hosts) or an IP address and the card will be configured at the next boot. Or you can manually set the card up from a shell with:

> ifconfig hme1 plumb
> ifconfig hme1 10.10.4.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 -trailers up

Did it work for you? I'm guessing that it did by your comment.

Yes, it did. I created a file /etc/hostname.hme1 with ip 10.10.4.1.
touch /reconfigure and reboot and it was what I required...so thanks a lot

BTW,
Do you know how I can bring x-windows on my NT machine at home. I use secure crt to telnet into sun box amd is there any freeware which I can use?

There is at least one free X server for win95/98 but I don't know if it works on NT. We looked at it last fall and weren't impressed, but it may be better now. Also there are several commercial vendors (Hummingbird, NCD, etc).

Another option is to make your NT system dual boot to NT & Linux and use Linux for Xwindows. What I do (and has gotten tremendously popular at work) is to use a pure Linux system and run windows in a virtual machine from VMware (http://www.vmware.com). It's not free ($99 for home use) but it works really, really well. And I can treat the windows installation just like an ordinary Unix file, copy it to another box, back it up to tape, have a second copy, etc. One of the guys at work runs linux, win95, and NT all at the same time.
