I am running a Sun Server with Solaris 8 and I can't see it from outside of my lan.  When I ping the host from the server I get the following message:  ICMP Host Unreachable from gateway ms1 (192.168.1.6)
 for icmp from ms1 (192.168.1.6) to 24.160.90.200.  My server's IP is 192.168.1.6 behind the router.  The Gateway IP is the router's IP which is 192.168.1.1.  How can I set the gateway to that so that the outside world can communicate with my server?
