Internet connection failed on solaris 10

i am new bie on solaris ,i just installed it on vmware. i tryed to connect to the internet from solaris but it failed.
during the installation i ignore the DHCP and i assign a fixed ip address to the host.
is that has an impact on internet access ? and if so how to add another interface eth0 for exemple?? how to configure the addon interface to connect to the internet ??

please use the search function before posting. connecting solaris to the internet is a common question around here and you should find lots of answers.

for the interface question... read the manpage for the command "ifconfig". this should answer most of your questions about handling NICs in solaris.

# ifconfig -a
# ifconfig if_name plumb

also read the (realy good) solaris admin guide. you can find it at
