The commands are quite similar.  I am not sure exactly what you are looking

Put the VIP on the loopback interface, lo0 - it won't arp from there,
thus solving the arp problem:

ifconfig lo0:1 inet broadcast netmask 

If you try to use the "-arp" option to ifconfig with lo0, you will get an
error as that is not a valid operation on a loopback interface.

Then make sure your web servers (apache, netscape, whatever) are listening

Is there something I am missing here?  Try setting up your director for
telnet first, as Joseph Mack recommends.

I have not actually used Solaris systems as real servers (at least not
