inetd has not started so you won't be able to telnet.

Did the interface get configured with an IP address, can you ping it?

Do you know how to start it in single user mode?

That is the correct broadcast address for that netmask. I suggest you check /etc/netmasks to change the netmask to be what you intend.





Then go through a "change management" investigation....

after issuing this command sys-unconfig all setting has been reset and i configured the network paramaters and everything. Right now i can login to GUI without any problems but the station cannot be emulate in windows platform we are using hummingbird to emulate this station before. Is there any configuration that needs to be change or set.

I also had a porblem in mnttap i was supposed to add all mounted nfs here but if i saved it seems like permission denied. I have tried in single user mode to edit but same thign happened. Is there other way to edit this mnttab?

appreciate your assistance and expertise.
