The steps for setting up a manual SLIP connection are basically the same as for PPP:
# ifconfig sl0 inet <local-ip> -arp -trailers <remote-ip>
kermit> set line /dev/tty00 kermit> set speed 9600 # or whatever kermit> set flow rts/cts kermit> connectIf your're using a modem, you'll have to dial before connecting:
kermit> dial <your terminal-server's phone number>Log into your remote machine's SLIP-account or start SLIP by hand (using
slattachor some menu; please consult your network-admin!). After that (when you get weird chars on your display) terminate kermit.
# slattach -s 9600 /dev/tty00
# ifconfig sl0 inet up
# route add 0.0.0.0 <remote-ip>
You can use higher baud-rates than 9600 on both, PPP and SLIP.
