Solaris uses completely different interface files. It has some strange encoding
which isnt completely explained in the manuals, but is a hex representation of
the IP addresses instead of the ASCII versions in SunOS. Why Sybase went from
a simple file format that can be edited to the new ugly format I dont know..

You can generate a proper interface file using the sybinstall utility...
