HPUX only...

For HPUX, you only need to change 2 places. I recently did this when my systems changed this when new routers were installed on my network with a different IP address scheme.

/etc/hosts

/etc/rc.config.d/netconf

These are the two places you need to change it.


Then you can check it by running.

netstat -rn

Look for your primary lan card. In most cases, it is lan0.


Also remember, if you have any security that runs, that piece will need to be updated. In my case that was a mandatory step for users to login at all.


Hope this helps.

IS_KSEG_VA(9r)															    IS_KSEG_VA(9r)

NAME
IS_KSEG_VA, IS_SEG0_VA, IS_SEG1_VA - General: Determine if the specified address is located in the kernel-unmapped address space, the user- mapped address space, and the kernel-mapped address space. SYNOPSIS
void IS_KSEG_VA( unsigned long addr ); void IS_SEG0_VA( unsigned long addr ); void IS_SEG1_VA( unsigned long addr ); ARGUMENTS
Specifies the virtual address. DESCRIPTION
The IS_KSEG_VA routine determines if the specified address is located in the kernel-unmapped address space. The IS_SEG0_VA routine deter- mines if the specified address is located in the user-mapped address space. The IS_SEG1_VA routine determines if the specified address is located in the kernel-mapped address space. RETURN VALUES
None EXAMPLE
The following code fragment shows a call to IS_KSEG_VA: . . . caddr_t virt_addr; [1] unsigned phys_addr; [2] . . . if(IS_KSEG_VA(virt_addr)) { [3] phys_addr = KSEG_TO_PHYS(virt_addr); [4] . . . Declares a variable to store the user buffer's virtual address. Declares a variable to store the physical address returned by KSEG_TO_PHYS. Before calling KSEG_TO_PHYS, calls IS_KSEG_VA to determine if the virtual address is from the kernel-unmapped address space. If the virtual address is from the kernel-unmapped address space, then calls KSEG_TO_PHYS to convert the address to a corresponding physi- cal address. SEE ALSO
Routines: KSEG_TO_PHYS(9r), PHYS_TO_KSEG(9r) IS_KSEG_VA(9r)
