Connecting to the Internet with Solaris 10

To connect to the internet with Solaris 10 in a virtualized environment, read this this expert response from site expert Andrew Kutz.

I have installed Solaris 10 on VMware running Windows XP. I want to connect to the Internet using Solaris, but I can't figure out how to do it. It's showing the lo0 NIC card on the task bar. Can you please give me a step-by-step on how to connect to the Internet? I have wireless and LAN Internet connections.

If your Solaris OS inside the virtual machine sees the NIC, then simply follow the instructions from Sun's Web site on how to configure a network connection using the Solaris desktop GUI.
