(The latest version is 114, BTW.)

I'm trying to do this, but not having much luck.  I have term working --
linecheck reports no errors either direction, and I am able to set up a
term link and trsh into it.  However when I do the tredir and try to sup,
I get:

# tredir 871
Redirecting 871 to
# sup -s
SUP 8.26 (4.3 BSD) for system software at Apr  3 12:28:51
SUP: Can't connect to server for supfilesrv: No route to host

Obviously, I'm missing.  The question is: what??  (I would try a route add,
but I haven't the vaguest notion of how to make it run through term.)
I'm running NetBSD/Mac, current as of 19 March 1994.
