What does your /etc/resolv.conf file look like (or does it exist). This is where you plug your DNS servers in for name resolution.

/etc/nodename contains the hostname
Can you elaborte on this a bit more.

In one of my Solaris books it mentions this file but it doesn't say too much else about it.

In looking at this file on my system (/etc/hostname.hme0) all I see is the hostname of my system, which is froggie11. I don't see an IP address or any other information.

Where is the IP address, subnet mask and other information stored, is it stored in any file?
