This patch to the Solaris x86 asy driver allows selecting speeds 57600 and 115200 by remapping speed 50 and 75 to these higher values. More Info.

Should you install Solaris with just one filesystem on your disc, or should you use several filesystems? This debate comes up every few months in newsgroup comp.unix.solaris; these are my thoughts on the subject.

xtr by John Pochmara is an X Window System tool with similar functionality to the old Sun Traffic utility. I have made a minor change to make it build on current Solaris, but John's original is here too:
xtr, just like traffic, requires a server program called rpc.etherd to gather data from the relevant network interface. This is not supplied by Sun, but a version which works on Solaris is available from Stefan Petri's web site:
rpc.etherd (html link)
When these two are used on Solaris x86, IP addresses appear reversed. I don't know which is really to blame, but it can be fixed by removing the htonl() calls in rpc.etherd packet-common.ic, leaving simple assignments instead. I havn't tried this with the client and server on different endianism machines though. The filtering may need some attention too in this area (not tried it). There is some code in xtr to translate IP addresses in host.c which is commented out; uncommenting the call on gethostbyaddr works for me, YMMV.
