Accessing Solaris 8 over WAN

We can access our solaris 8 from our LAN . However when we try to
access the same over our WAN , it is not able to ping the server .

/etc/hosts has entries for our DNS server. Another thing all WAN clients
are Windows 2000 workstations .

Here is the output netstat -nr
Routing Table: IPv4
Destination Gateway Flags Ref Use Interface
-------------------- -------------------- ----- ----- ------ ---------
192.168.100.0 192.168.100.245 U 1 8328 hme0
224.0.0.0 192.168.100.245 U 1 0 hme0
127.0.0.1 127.0.0.1 UH 271504175 lo0

Wan workstations have IP addresses 192.168.0.0

What should I do to enable WAN users access solaris 8 .

connection

Hi,

it is not so simple, we need more information.
How is the connection between the hosts ( e.g. router ).
Look for the command traceroute.

Best regards
Dieter

through router

Hi .

Thanks for the reply .

The connection between the sites is through router.

We have similar dell windows 2003 server this can be connected easily over WAN.

Try adding a default route - your netstat output didn't show one.

See Sun Docs

more details

Can the following facts help in answering the query precisely. I have not been able to configure
default router.

1. There is only hostname.hme0 file (no other hostname.* files) in /etc folder .

2. /etc/netmasks has the entry
192.168.100.0 255.255.255.0
Can adding extra entry with 192.168.10.0 and mask 255.255.255.0 be added or
the existing net mask be changed .

3. hosts entry /etc/nsswitch.conf has value files against it .

4. There is no defaultrouter file in /etc .

Create /etc/defaultrouter on the network client.
# vi /etc/defaultrouter
Type the host name and IP address of the machine you have designated as the default router.
# vi /etc/inet/hosts
Add the host name and IP address of the designated default router to the network client's /etc/inet/hosts.
