trying setup a session to a test machine that is on the other side of the world so I can reinstall solaris and setup some test apps. I can connect to it via a ssh session that I create from a windows terminal server that is in the same subnet. I need to get it where I can connect to it with a ssh session from my side of the world without going through the windows terminal server.
The test box is a solaris 8 box at the moment.
I can ping the default gateway from my workstation and I can ping the default gateway from the test machine but I cannot ping from my workstation to the test machine or vise versa.
Have something wrong with the broadcast I belive.
Getting this from a ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=1000849<UP,LOOPBACK,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 8232 index 1
inet 127.0.0.1 netmask ff000000
hme0: flags=1000843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST,IPv4> mtu 1500 index 2
inet 18.104.22.168 netmask ffff0000 broadcast 22.214.171.124
the ip is 126.96.36.199, the broadcast should be 188.8.131.52, and netmask 255.255.255.192.
don't think I have the /etc/resolv.conf right for one thing but not sure what to put in it.
