Can anyone help me with dialing a modem and setting up a SLIP connection?
According to one of the files on the puma web site, you're supposed to do
"cu -l /dev/tty00 -s 9600" and then a modem init command and the dialing
command, and after logging in, use the slattach command. However, as soon
as I do the cu command, my system crashes.
So instead, I tried the "tip" command. I have this entry in /etc/remote:
When I type "tip osu" I simply get "link down". Any idea what I'm doing
wrong? And, once I dial out successfully, how do I set up the SLIP
And while I'm at it, I've seen a few people talk about scrolling. What are
they referring to? How does one scroll the screen in NetBSD?
(I'm running 1.1 on a 17M IIsi)
Thanks again for your time.
