IP Networking in Zones
IP networking in a zone can be configured in two different ways, depending
on whether the non-global zone is given its own exclusive IP instance or
shares the IP layer configuration and state with the global zone. The
shared-IP type is the default.
Exclusive-IP zones are assigned zero or more network interface names, and for those
network interfaces they can send and receive any packets, snoop, and change the
IP configuration, including IP addresses and the routing table. Note that those changes
do not affect any of the other IP instances on the system.
