Does anyone have instructions, or know where good ones are, telling how
to set up either slip or ppp?

I'm looking for something along the lines of: you have a modem, you know
modem control codes that make MacSLIP work, and you have a current version
of MacBSD, so now you want to do X to configure everything.

I've found the SLIP-how-to on the ftp site at cray-ymp, but it goes
from the point of being able to have cu talk to the modem. I always
get a write error, then cu exits. :-(

I'm sure I'm doing something stupidly wrong, but don't know what. Oh,
/etc/ttys has the flags set to "38400 crtscts" with no getty running.
MacSLIP runs w/o problem at 38400.

I tried looking through the man pages, but slattatch is the only
thing that comes up.


Take care,
