???? you mention the destination address when you connect to a site.
What do you mean with this question.

- NAT?
- connect()
- do you mean how to change the IP address of an existing machine?

Also note that Solaris != linux.
It is a BSD derivate of Unix (More like FreeBSD, and offerings from IBM, HP etc.)
Linux is no derivate of BSD so it  quite different.

Can you elaborate on the requirement? Destination address should be the remote system to connect to and you should have option to change it, unless it is your server IP which you mean.

We figured it out by editing the host table.  Normally we work in Linux.  Thanks
