TCP/IP Configuration on Tru64 Unix


I have just finished installation of Tru64 Unix 5.1b on Alpha 1200 Server. And I have installed all the licenses.

I am facing some problem while configuring TCP/IP services.

I have configured TCP/IP using following command:

ifconfig tu0 netmask broadcast

After configuration output of ifconfig -a is:

# ifconfig -a
lo0: flags=100c89
inet netmask ff000000 ipmtu 4096

sl0: flags=10

tu0: flags=c63
inet netmask ffffff00 broadcast ipmtu 1500

tun0: flags=80

tun1: flags=80

But the problem is that I am not able to connect to the server from outside the subnet. Means, I am able to connect it through telnet from 189 subnet but not from outside 189.

Could anyone help me to resolve this issue. Did I do anything wrong?

Re: TCP/IP Configuration on Tru64 Unix

The best way to configure network is sysman.
So do:
# sysman Networking
and set all network parameters.
Did you set default gateway?

Thanks Vladimir,

Problem got solved using sysman Networking... :)
Problem is because I didn't set the default gateway.
