I was wondering if anyone could help me on this one.
I have this Sun system which I somehow do not have keyboard or mouse, or
display access to. But I do have a crossed cable connection from my PC to
the system. Is there any way that I could detect what IP settings is the
system using (gateway, subnet, ip, etc) the crossed cable connection?
unzip; strip; touch; finger; mount; fsck; more; yes; umount; sleep

Download ethereal from www.ethereal.com and install it on your pc. It
is a free network protocol analyzer (does everything snoop does and
more). Listen on the wire and see what you see...
Null modem, simple, I bought tow ultra 30's and had the same problem and
after mucking about trying to sniff the startup i decided it was much
simpler to just buy a null modem cable and use hyperterminal from the PC
to connect to the console - then its easy!!
