in order to set up a tcp/ip environment you must configure your system files to allow trafic with other networks or machines through. (DNS)
first you should configure your interface:
use the "ifconfig -a" to see your settings, then use the same command to configure...if this is a new interface you must use the "plumb" option to assign interface drivers to your card.

# ifconfig hme0 plumb
| | |
(command) (Card) (turned on)

you must bring your card down before configuration.

# ifconfig hme0 down

then you must configure your card to the IP and netmask that you want. and bring it UP

# ifconfig hme0 xx.xx.xx.xx netmask 255.x.x.x broadcast + up
use ifconfig -a to confirm changes.
In order to connect a host to the network this info. is also needed:
NETMASK(if needed)
DNS server name

*the file that holds information about your hostname and your loop back( /etc/hosts
*the file that solaris uses to configure system at boot time is
*the file that contains the name of the host is /etc/nodename
*/etc/services hold the ports and network rules (don't touch this file)
* /etc/netmasks holds your netmask address if your host is on a segment.
There are so many more steps involved in setting up DNS and networking...but those are a few preliminary steps

If you don't mind resetting your existing network settings, you can use /usr/sbin/sys-unconfig to start from scratch and have Solaris itself walk you through a re-configuration upon reboot.
