Setting the Network Address on SGI Computer

 

 

The system�s network address (IP address) is covered more thoroughly in the IRIX Admin: Networking and Mail. To set the network address, follow these steps:

1. Place the network address in /etc/hosts on the same line as the system name. For example

194.45.54.4 magnolia

2. If you use the network information service (NIS), place the name of your domain in the file /var/yp/ypdomain, if it is installed.

3. Use the nvram(1M) command to set the variable netaddr to the IP number of the system. For example:

nvram netaddr 194.45.54.4
