SUMMARY: Additional Ethernet Card

Date: Thu Jun 17 1999 - 06:04:25 CDT

Dear Sun managers,

 Just after posting the question, I found an info doc on SUNsolve.

 The solution was to do a ifconfig qe3 plumb to let the streams know
its there!

 ifconfig -a reported the interface.

 I added an entry to /etc/hosts and created a /etc/hostname.qe3 file
containing the ip address.

 I then touch'd a /etc/notrouter file to prevent in.routed -s from

 Rebooted the system and both network connections came up.
