1. Edit /etc/hosts Enter the ip first, then name of any hosts
you will be using/connecting to. Example: sun1 sun2
2. Edit /etc/resolv.conf
domain (enter name here) leave out the ()marks
nameserver (enter name or ip here) leave out the ()marks
3. Edit /etc/nsswitch.conf
hosts dns files
4. Edit /etc/defaultdomain
(enter your domain name) leave out the ()marks
5. Edit /etc/defaultrouter
(enter name or ip here) leave out the ()marks

This is how I set up my clients, and may not be the same setup you require. Some of these files may not pre-exist, and may need to be created. Use the touch command to make a file, and vi command to edit the file. Hope it helps. Jeremie

Turn off unneeded services, and provide a firewall / packetfilter / etc. gateway, unless you want your Solaris box rooted in minutes.
