I used to run a SLIP link between an old i386 laptop and a pmax, years
ago.  the i386 had 16450 UARTs, and would occationally drop characters,
but turning down NFS to 512byte blocks it was reliable, if slow.

there isn't anything magic to the setup; just allocate your IPs, set up
your routes, and make sure the router has forwarding turned on.
