Configure Solaris zone on new network


I have a Solaris 10 zone which I need to configure on a new network. I have configured the new IP on the zone itself and I can ping the interface from a node on the same network, but not from another network. Basically I need to know how to route the traffic from the zone to it's default gateway.


BGE0 - IP - GW

BGE1 - IP - GW

Zone IP: - GW

Default Gateway on the global zone is

I've looked up IPFilters and come up with the entry below. I'm just wondering would this entry work? I just want to be sure before enabling IPFilters and adding entries as I have a number of prod zones running on this global zone and don't want to break the networking.

pass out quick on bge0 to bge1: from to any

Any help is greatly appreciated.

On Solaris 10 zones they are configured autonomously and are not aware of the global zone configuration which is independent of the local zone.

On Solaris 10 the default gateway is configured in /etc/defaultrouter which normally contains one single line with a left justified ip address of the gateway, for example:


and that's all there is in the file. It may be edited with your favorite editor and is then read at (zone) boot time.

So you can mess with this inside the local zone and not affect your global zone.
