Currently I have 2 networks : ( 1 for windows PC and other for Unix )
Windows PC use Class A and Unix class B).

Windows server use the following IP :
def gateway

This server run well and can use internet access using assigned gateway.

Now, I want to configure my unix server (seperate network) to join above network
current IP is:

ifconfig -a

e1000g0: inet netmask ffff0000 broadcast

How can I change the IP similar to my windows server.

New IP
def gtway

What command should I use, how to ping itself and to windows server and
how to undo if something goes wrong ?

Also, the problem that I have now is, I can only access this unix server using telnet
The monitor and keyboard attached to this unix box, is not working. This will be my first time
to change unix IP, so I really need your help, step-by-step guide.
