Okay, so here's my problem:
The machine you see this message coming from (solutions.solon.com) is
supposed to be net address 126.96.36.199, as well as 188.8.131.52. The
192.129.84.x addresses are my class C license.
My home machine (taniemarie.solon.com) is 184.108.40.206. My other home
machines are connected by ethernet as 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168.
So, here's my problem:
If I connect slip from xxx.133 to xxx.3, I can't talk to the remote machine.
Why? Because everything assumes the slip interface is irrelevant, after all,
we have a local ethernet card which talks to 192.129.84.*.
How do I configure things so that two hosts are reached through ethernet,
say, and at least one is reached through slip, even though they're in the
same network? Help!
