SUMMARY: Sol 2.1 ifconfig trouble

Date: Tue Apr 27 1993 - 18:23:55 CDT

Wow! Lots of replies all saying the same thing - and it worked!

Thanks everyone.

My question was....

I'm having problems getting Sol2.1 to set my subnet mask properly. I've got
/etc/netmasks set to

hsru# cat /etc/netmasks


And the universal cry was... RUBBISH! Your /etc/netmasks should (very probably)

Which is the spell needed to declare that the Class B network 139.133 is to
be subnetted, with 8 bits for the subnet field, and 8 for the host field.

Thanks to.... (Gregg Siegfried) (Oon-Gil Paik)
