# 1  



Allright,


Thanks to http://docs.sun.com I've got the tcp/ip portion of my box working now. I can see anything I want, as long as it's got a numerical address.

Does anyone know how to add just a DNS entry? like reference my dns server, and configure my host name?


# 2  


Victory,



Allright, I finialy got it to work. Here I am, finialy with DNS settings working..
for anyone who ever needs a reference here they are:

tcp/ip settings.
hostname.interface (ie hostname.elxl0)
<add your ip to this document>

nodename
add your local machine name

defaultdomain
your.domain

defaultrouter
your router/gateway usualy xxx.xxx.subnet.1

hosts
this is a table of
127.0.0.1 localhost loghost
<your.ip>

dns:
nsswitch.conf

add to hosts: dns files
add the dns part
add to recolv.conf:
domain: your.domain (ie uri.edu)
search: your.domain
nameserver: <NameServer IP>



I hope this helps someone out in the future..
All of these files are found in
/etc/
