config Solaris in order to connect to Internet

hello
I just re-configured the router with static IP.
Then, I executre sys-unconfig to setup the hme0 for solaris 9

after rebooting, I also edit resolv.conf and nsswitch.conf with appropriate DNS information

However, the Netscape cannot connect to internet (error: server is not responding) ; whereas,  the PING command to yahoo.com reported "yahoo is alive".

Can you help me?

Does 'nslookup www.sun.com' return an IP?

Does your router have any firewall rules that could be preventing access?

That doesn't sound like DNS issue. It looks like some access rule on the router/firewall block the http traffic.
Do you have other PC on the same network as Solaris 9 box so you can test Internet Explorer for the same
site you was trying to browse in Solaris 9 box?

Create /etc/defaultrouter file and put your router IP in the file, eg:

echo "xx.xx.xx.xx" > /etc/defaultrouter

replace "xx.xx.xx.xx" with your router IP, then reboot.

If you still have problem, check your firewall setting and make sure port 80 is not blocked.

First, be sure your default gateway is correct and setup.  I know ... sounds pretty silly but check it anyway.  Make sure /etc/defaultrouter is setup and a "netstat -rn" command shows you the exact same IP address.

If default gateway is not setup as expected, be sure your subnet mask is correct.  Another "of course its correct" area but this can easily cause default gateway settings to be ignored.

Ping your default gateway - assuming its allowing ICMP traffic that is.

Try pinging your default gateay's default gateway.
