Hi All,
I am getting an error "netout: broken pipe" when ftpying a file in Solaris 8. Any suggestions? Second part of question is how can I add a swap slice to a system with no swap defined?  Thanks for your help.

Part 1:
"I am getting an error "netout: broken pipe"

Need more information about FTP, can you ftp small file? was the file you try to FTP > 2GB?

check your disk space (including disk quota), check if the ftpd is running in the FTP server.

PS: ftp is not secure, consider use secure shell/secure ftp instead, you can download openssh
from:

Part 2:

Configuring additional swap space:
 1) Create the swap file
    #mkfile nnn[k|b|m] filename
 2) Active the swap file
    #/usr/sbin/swap -a /path/filename
 3) Add an entry for the swap file to the /etc/vfstab
    /path/filename  -  -  swap  -  no -
 4) verify the swap file is added
    /usr/sbin/swap -l

  Removeing a swap file from use:
    #/usr/sbin/swap -d /path/filename
    #rm swap-filename
    #delete the swap file entry from the /etc/vfstab.

cheers!
