Sun 420R running Solaris 10 two NIC Cards - Need to setup Network

Medium Priority

I have a Sun420 running Solaris 10 with two NIC cards. I would like to bring up both networks through a PuTTY window from my laptop or other desktop. I just installed Solaris 10 and is running well but think the networks are mis-configured. I have no idea how to determine what the P address for the server or two networks should but would like to initially get running and later connect to my WIFI router for Internet access. Can someone guide me through the steps to create a valid IP address for the server and networks along with configuration through the GUI tool smc if this is the chosen tool?

There is no specific way to determine what the IP address should be for a host.  You pick one in the IP subnet and assign it.  I can be any IP address within your subnet as long as it is not part of a DHCP scope or is not already assigned to another host.

you may configure your system to use DHCP to get IP addresses assigned.
