I'm currently using slip (14400 bps), and I'm looking to improved
transfer performance. So, what is best, PPP or Slip ?

Is there a way to use CSLIP with NetBSD ? (The man pages for ifconfig
mention something about an option for using Compressed Headers,
is this CSLIP? If so, somebody figured out what the syntax is ?)

Also, is it possible to set MTU with slip ? If so, how ?
(If I remember right, MTU seems to be set ~256, but my provider
suggest a MTU setting of 1500. If I managed to set it to 1500, will
I have better networking performance ?)

Sorry if this is a FAQ, I've not been able to find anything to
answer these questions.

Thanks in advance.
