I'm trying to do a sup over a 'term' connection.  (Term is neat program 
of Linux origin that tunnels IP packets through a serial line,  and 
allows one to access the network via a dialup into an unprivileged unix 
account.  It is referred to as "poor man's slip").

Term itself works fine for me (I can get remote shells with trsh,  and use
tdownload, etc).  Since sup uses service 871,  I give the command
  tredir 871 871
to get sup to use the port on the host I'm dialed into.   I have made a
supfile,  as per the instructions in /pub/sup/README.sup on
I've also made an entry for in my /etc/hosts file.

When I try to test out sup with the command:
  sup -fv supfile
It tells me that it can't find a route to host  (

I'm obviously missing something.  Could someone give me a hint?
