    Default Internet Access through PC installed Solaris 8

    All,

    I would really be thankful, if any one provides me the details for
    configuring internet access through my home computer freshly installed
    solaris 8.

    OS Version : Solaris 8 7/10
    Internet Connection: Cable Internet Connection [dedicated IP]
    Home PC: Pentium IV

    I have edited the following files:

    /etc/inet/hosts
    /etc/netmasks
    /etc/resolv.conf ( the file was not there after the fresh
    installation)
    /etc/defaultdomain
    /etc/hostname.rtls0

    But I'm able to connnet through Win98 where I have configured TCP/IP
    for my cable internet connection.

    Please do imply me further in this regard what needs to be done?

    Avidly waiting for your replies.

    I think it all depends on what sort of cable modem you are using and how
    you connect to your provider.

    Perhaps you can give some more details on how you connect on the windows
    machine to your provider.

    IIRC that must be Win98SE or some later release. Install Internet
    Connection Sharing from the Windows CD. The LAN side NIC of the Windows
    box will then be automatically assigned the IP address of 192.168.0.1 and
    the Windows box will become a DHCP server.

    The simplest way of configuring the Solaris system is to execute
    sys-unconfig and on reboot select DHCP instead of a static address.
    Select None as your naming service. After the reboot completes then copy
    /etc/nsswitch.dns to /etc/nsswitch.conf and edit /etc/resolv.conf:

    domain your.lan
    nameserver x.x.x.x

    Where x.x.x.x is the IP address of the DNS server used by the Windows box.
