Right...  I guess I should have been more specific in what I was asking...  :)

Many folks use some of the blueprint settings from the "Solaris Operating
Environment Network Settings for Network Security"
http://www.sun.com/blueprints/1200/network-updt1.pdf.  I'm wondering should I

if I should just continue to use the 'normal' settings that I've got configed
