Running Software Checks
If the network has problems, diagnose and fix software-related problems
by acting in one of the following ways:
Use the netstat command to display network
Check the hosts database (and ipnodes if you are using IPv6) to ensure that the entries are correct
If you are running RARP, check the Ethernet addresses in the ethers database to ensure that the entries are correct and current.
Try to connect to the local host by using telnet.
Ensure that the network daemon inetd is
running. Log in as superuser and type the following:
# ps -ef | grep inetd
The following example shows the output when the inetd
daemon is running:
root 57 1 0 Apr 04 ? 3:19 /usr/sbin/inetd -s
root 4218 4198 0 17:57:23 pts/3 0:00 grep inetd
