Configuring networking interface on Sun Blade 1500

Hi,

I am attempting to configure my ethernet interface on a Sun Blade 1500. I am testing out my network interface my connecting a crossover cable from my blade to a windows box. I would like to assign an ip address of 10.0.0.2 to "bge0" and netmask of "255.0.0.0". I have typed the following:

# ifconfig bge0 plumb
#ifconfig bge0 10.0.0.2 netmask 255.0.0.0
#ifconfig bge0 up
# ping 10.0.0.3 (ip address of windows machine)
No answer from 10.0.0.3

Why is my network interface not configured properly? I know on my windows box that I have 10.0.0.1 defined as the default gateway. Is this necessary also on my Sun Blade? If so, what is the syntax for creating a default gateway with that ip address?

I tried the following:

#route add default gateway 10.0.0.1

but when trying to ping windows box, I still did not get any answer

Since you have no switch or router connetced between the two, you will probably need to force link speed and full/half duplex mode.
