I don't know how to set up the slip services on the Sun, but on the
MacBSD side...
 * if you are using a direct connection, then you can probably
   skip the next two steps.  I'm using a modem to dial in to a
   slip service...
 ** cu -l /dev/ser0 -s 19200 (this is what I'm using, the line and
			     speed may vary...)
 ** <connect to wherever>
 * slattach -s 19200 /dev/ser0 (use the same line and speed as above.
				again, this is what I'm using)
 * ifconfig sl0 myhost.ip myslipserver.ip netmask 0xwhatever up
 * route add default myslipserver.ip

You should be up at this point...  I assume you know the correct
IP addresses and netmasks.
