You've got 5 questions related to getting SUMA working on AIX; either this is not a professional environment (where you should have called IBM weeks ago) or you're very lucky to still have a job. It's pretty obvious you don't know what you're doing; why haven't you called a professional yet? – Chris S May 16 '11 at 11:59

Do you have direct Internet access from the machine? In a corporate environment I would guess not and you need to set your proxy server.
