sorry i didn't see your original mail -- i've use the 'hip'
service at berkeley (my machien is 'totally.hip'...  8-).

anyway, you've gotta do several things:

your kernel must be configured with SLIP:
pseudo-device	sl 1
(or a number greater than one) must be in your kernel config.

then, after doing the 'slip' thing at the annex, use 'slattach'
on the tty, then 'ifconfig' the port's ip address and destination address
after that, do a 'route default <the port's IP address>'.

that should be most of what you need, but an /etc/resolv.conf file
might be useful, too -- man 'resolv.conf' or 'resolver' depending
on how recent your version of -current is.

i dunno the exact way to configure PPP; i've never done it.
