First, you need to find out the pci ID of the card. Intel's vendor ID is 8086. So the card's ID will be 8086,something
The quick way:
Run my prtdev script.
prtconf -pv | prtdev
The long way:
Look thorugh the rather long output of "prtconf -pv" to find your card. Then look through the associated "model:", "name:", and "compatible:" fields.
Then, once (if) you have found an 8086 identifier, you need to add it to /etc/driver_aliases.
[Note: "8086,0" is an identifier that has been reported to show up in rare cases. It is not valid. Look for a different one]
To use the latest cheap "PRO/100+ Management Adapter" card as an example, add
iprb "pci8086,c"to /etc/driver_aliases, if there isn't an entry for it already in there.
If you then do "drvconfig;devlinks" you should then have the card available to you, as verified by
ifconfig iprb0 plumbOr the safer was is the old "touch /reconfigure; init 6"
See the regular sun documentation on how to configure an ethernet interface from here on.
Usually, you would want to do
echo yourhostname >/etc/hostname.iprb0 ; sync ; reboot
