Masks are in /etc/networks


To change ip address for interface hme0, check /etc/hostname.hme0, then edit /etc/hosts for the entry stated in the first file.

reboot to make changes, check it works.

Enjoy, oh, Chris is also right about the mask

Hi rami_tawfiq,

   The easy to change a server IP or system name, is to use /usr/sbin/sys-unconfig , command to undo your systems configuration, and then reboot your system.

   When system boot up, just following the screen to fill in all the new information about you system configuration.

   if you want to do it manually, backup the following files and then use vi to make the changes:

       /etc/nodename    #if you need to change the name of the machine
   /etc/hostname.interface    (eg hostname.hme0 )
   /etc/hosts                 # Update to reflect new name
   /etc/nsswitch.conf         # Update if your name resolution
   /etc/resolv.conf      
#Update if your name servers/domain changed (DNS only)
   /etc/defaultdomain   # set you default domain
  /etc/defaultrouter      # Set the default router's IP

  /etc/inet/networks             # Set your network name
  /etc/inet/netmasks             # Set your network number
  /etc/n/etc/net/ticots/hosts    # For the streams-level loopback
  /etc/ticlts/hosts       # For the streams-level loopback
  /etc/net/ticotsord/hosts  # For the streams-level loopback

  If you have no experience about this files, please make a backup before making the change. after

you edit all the file, reboot your system.
