Hi All,

I've just installed Sol 10 on x86.

I can ping public IPs but not hostnames.

I've entered serveral nameservers (all of which work on other servers) in /etc/resolv.conf

Still no success.

My NIC has been configured and ifconfig -a shows it as active with an IP ( on the LAN.

Default route has been set to

All other servers / workstations on the LAN using as their gateway connects 100% to any hostname via a browser.

No firewall has been set up.

Please advise what to do to solve this issue.
