There's a 'recommended/required' patchset for 6.3, a POSIX patchset for 6.3 and a Y2K patchset for 6.3. Maybe your problem was fixed.

One thing to look at is the hosts file, because if the machine isn't listed in the hosts file you'll have problems as some of the IRIX stuff "connects" to the local machine via network sockets (technically it should work via DNS, but that's a bit trickier so just use the hosts file). If that's fine continue to the other network stuff.
For 6.3 and 6.4 your best bet is to use the 6.2 help stuff if it isn't on TechPubs for 6.3 or 6.4, as both of those releases have more in common with 6.2 than 6.5.

I put them on my own FTP server: ftp://ftp.jurassic.nl/pub/irix/patches/ ... _required/
