Dear ALL,

Today I was configuring the Network of the server using vi editor , I had change the ip from /etc/inet/hosts file after modifying the file I had restarted the system but it was not loging into root user. it gives an error "unable to login" , I searched the problem and find out that I missd the netmask file to modify but now I am unable to loging through hyper terminal . I am configuring the server using hyper terminal , is there other way to configure the server , because there is no vga card for the monitor display. How can I modify my server files. Please help me in this regard . I shall remain thankful to you.
The best answer: With Lions should be fine editing the standard /etc/hosts file
# Host Database
# localhost is used to configure the loopback interface
# when the system is booting.  Do not change this entry.           localhost
add here your IPv4 hosts list     broadcasthost
::1                 localhost
fe80::1%lo0         localhost
