Easy way is `netservices open`, but that opens all services, to be more
selective you probably have to use svcadm and "enable -r" or change
config/local_only on the required services.

Sorry I can't be more specific, I haven't done it and I'm not on a Sol-10
machine right now.

"netservices open" did open more stuff up as confirmed by an nmap scan of the
box, however X didn't start working.

Would it matter that the box is a Sun Fire v445?  With no
montior/mouse/keyborad would X even get setup?  I did a "Full plus OEM
