Depends on the firewall. Could be a lot of places. You could try the pkginfo command to see what packages are installed.

See --> man pkginfo

Of course, if a firewall was not installed using the pkgadd interface, then it prolly won't show in the pkginfo database.

You could also try the ps command and list all the running processes and see if anything says "firewall".

Example --> ps -ef | more

See --> man ps

You could also examine the contents of the various /etc/rc?.d directories, or /etc/init.d, and look for any startup/shutdown scripts that have names containing strings like "fw" or "firewall", or grep the scripts for those strings.

If you're the admin of this machine, is there a particular reason you don't know what's installed on it?

So usually what are the firewall softwares for solaris? Will firewall possibly affect ntp time sync between two unix servers?

Thanks

There are a number of firewall software for Solaris. Suin had one called SunFire, I think. Or was it Solstice? I can never remember.

CheckPoint FireWall-1 runs on Solaris.

YOu can even use ipchains/iptables as a sort of "firewall".

Yes, a firewall that does not permit the necessary NTP traffic to pass can affect time sync between two servers.
