I belive that your issues is due to no routing for 192.168.193 outside the
solaris server. That means that the next machine after your Solaris server
must know that it should send packets to it. (and the next, and next...)

So you basically have to tell the other routers on your net where to send
trafic to your net.

And a sideline: If you need to communicate with the public internet, you
will need an adress which is carried there. yours isn´t. In that casee you
will need to run NAT in the solaris and translate it to "officiall"
