Direct Internet Access in Office

Last Saturday, I found unable to SSH into my Linux box in the office, turns out we had a network upgrade at the weekend, and the NIS server's IP address got changed. I had placed static IP into /etc/yp.conf, therefore, a failure.

Fix the error this morning and it connects again. Another change is now that DIA (Direct Internet Access) is enabled. Solaris can ping external hosts directly. For Linux, update the hosts line in /etc/nsswitch.conf into hosts: nis files dns mdns.
