Data netstat error

Hi all,

recently on my Sun Solaris 8 server this error message appeared:$ netstat -i
> ip open: Permission denied
> can't open mib stream: Bad file number
The server was rebooted recently and this error has only popped up since then. Any ideas?

A quick
Google search turned up the following from someone who had (and solved) the same problem:

... it'd a kind of pain to check perms on all /dev/* files, so
checking /dev/tcp, /dev/udp and /dev/ip did the trick.

For some reason /devices/pseudo/clone@0:ip had GID "root", but it has to be
"sys", because netstat is owned by root:sys and has SGID bit, so correct
perms are:

$ ls -l /usr/bin/netstat
-r-x--s--x 1 root sys 50712 Oct 6 1998 /usr/bin/netstat*
$ ls -l /devices/pseudo/clone@0:ip
crw-rw---- 1 root sys 11, 3 Jul 12 2000 /devices/pseudo/clone@0:ip
