    Can't connect to internet in Solaris 10

    Hey All

    Let's see if any of you networking guys can help me out here. I'm _barely_ functional with network stuff.

    I got a spare box recently that I wanted to put Solaris 10 on. I want this box to be at IP 192.168.2.122. So I set up a static route. I put the IP as 192.168.2.122, the netmask as 255.255.255.0, and the default gateway to be 192.168.2.1 (that's the IP of my router, which is connected to the internet).

    Well the box is indeed at 192.168.2.122, I can ssh into it. However, once I ssh into it, I'm unable to wget stuff from the web. Using lynx, the text-based web browser, tells me it can't connect to the internet. If I tell the machine to use DHCP to set up networking, then the internet works fine (but I can't get the IP I want that way).

    I suspect it's a DNS server issue. I used my iBook to issue a "dig google.ca" and got one of the IPs to be 72.14.207.104. When I ssh'd into my Solaris 10 box (japan) and issued a ping, I got the following:

    Code:
    [root@japan:~]# ping 72.14.207.104
    72.14.207.104 is alive
    So it can communicate with the outside world. It just can't translate names.

    Can anyone help me out? What am I missing?
