Semi-OT: routing

I assume your netmasks are, and you don't have a default
gateway set?

Could also be bad cable, hub, etc...

What about other traffic of a tcp nature rather than udp - such as telnet,
ftp, etc... of course making sure these services are enabled in inetd.conf
(followed by a sighup to inetd)?

Are you sure the ip information is really set on the sun (ie. what does
ifconfig -a show, is the interface marked up, etc.?)??
