That's my fault. When I first set up the link, my hope was
to have the link between tinman and almond as part of the
same subnet (192.168.0.n/24) as the 10baseT LAN that almond
connects to. To make SLIP work, I eventually moved to
Mihai Chelaru has very kindly provided an ipnat setup that
enables tinman to access the Internet via almond. I have yet
to invest the time needed to wrap my head around how this
works. I may set up another machine with SLIP using the same
subnet as the LAN so that I can have another go at proxy-arp
without breaking tinman's current configuration.
