connecting to the internet

I have an ia64 11.23 server that should now have access to the internet, however, I don't know what I need to configure to get it to work.

are there any daemons that need to be running? I see the www port defined in /etc/services...

Re: connecting to the internet

The Internet is a big place. To what is your
system connected? (And what else is
connected there?) SAM (or its descendants)
should offer basic IP network configuration.

Re: connecting to the internet

Hope the system is already connected to a network which can see your company proxy or ISP (through firewall), check whether you have firefox or mozilla installed:

swlist -l product|grep -Ei 'moz|fox'

which firefox
which mozilla


Otherwise, needs to provide more info. reg the system setup.

Hi ,

If mozilla is installed then only thing needed is DNS ip in /etc/resolv.conf ,that should be enough for internet configuration.

The net daemon needs to be running, which is undoubtedly running on your system.

What you need is to configure /etc/rc.config.d/netconf to have a valid and pingable gateway.

Then configure /etc/nsswtich.conf to use DNS for host name resolution, after files.

Then put your organizations DNS servers in /etc/resolv.conf

HP-UX has been internet ready for a very long time.
