comment Cannot Connect to Internet but can SSH into Solaris x86 (vs. 11)
@D_Bye just a quick question. Where is the config file? Just so I won't have to redo this again the next time I start it up.

@D_Bye Ah, it doesn't have the default Gateway. I know what the gateways are, but how should I add them? Like, what do I write in that file?

Yeah, this machine (VM) is on the same network as my local machine (Win Vista). I have other VM's that are on the same network, but are different OS. Like I can't really use my Ubuntu machine to help me resolve a Solaris network issue ... Or can I?

comment Checking the Speed of Active Network Connections
Thanks for that, but I think our business is split on a 10:1 ratio. So the speed is much better at 10Mbps both ways... So basically the Speed indicator is for the network card/driver?

I typed in that command, and it said: cat: /sys/class/net/eth0/speed: Invalid argument

Yes it is a Virtual Machine... if that is what you are asking?

I think I may have found why it is not showing up. I need an internet connection first - but I can connect through using SSH fine.

Thanks for that, but I got it to work with just that gcc-45, all I need is that compiler.

comment Set global environment variables at boot in Solaris 11
Thanks for that. I have found export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC in the /etc/profile file. DO I put them in there? This is the root's profile.

comment SAS hardrive 600GB 10k is not detecting in my linux server
Is the HDD formatted correctly? ... I know that in MS Windows, that you add a new HDD, and if it is formatted incorrectly, it won't be detected.

comment How to find out if Ubuntu is using DHCP (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS GUI)
Thank you @WarrenYoung, but the network admin has a full list of all the IP addresses I have used, so there won't be any collisions.
