How do I configure TCP/IP

How do I configure TCP/IP on an old SCO UNIX 3.2 v4.0

I can't seem to find any type of documentation on it.

Can someone give me step by step info or refer some type of article?

What do you mean configure tcp/ip? Networking is intrinsic to the *IX OS, could you be a bit more specific please.

gateway: /etc/defaultrouter
subnet mask: /etc/netmasks
IP address: man ifconfig

thanx for your reply

Thanx for the reply. One more thing, the system is an SCO 3.2 v.4.2 machine it's about 7 years old. Will the configuration you just sent me still work with it, even though the machine is pretty old?

teh date of a machine is not really an important matter. On sco i dont know if its files are in the same place as i mentioned. but on most versions of unix what i said is true.

configuring SCO networking

You may want to use "sysadmsh"
to do this. Look at the "Network" menu.

You may also want to look at the "route"
man page.
