IP aliases in Solaris

ifconfig iprb0:1 plumb
ifconfig iprb0:1 A.B.C.D netmask E.F.G.H up

to enable at boot time:
put host_name in /etc/hostname.iprb0:1 and add host_name entry in /etc/hosts, perhaps in /etc/netmasks if you don’t use a canonical netmask.

Solaris desktop

From yesterday I am using Solaris 10 on my laptop. I’ve removed Windows and FreeBSD. Works like a charm (except sound), includes StarOffice, I’ve installed Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice. No problems so far. CDE with DarkGold color theme is my favourite for almost eight years, since I’ve installed Solaris 1.0beta on a SUN Workstation.

uname -a output:
