Sun 5.8 IFCONFIG INFo

Hello I'm trying to get my sun box to keep its' ifconfig info after reboot. I can get it to keep the IP but it won't take the subnet mask. I'm using a /30 address.
thanks

You need an entry in the /etc/netmasks file that looks something like this:
192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0

where 192.168.0.0 is the network (not the IP), and 255.255.255.0 is the netmask. You can also read the manpage on netmasks.
