SLIP stands for Serial Line Internet Protocol - just a very simple method for sending IP packets over (for example) a phone line. PPP is much more versatile, but can be used for exactly the same purpose. SLIP is *way* easier to code - I had SLIP working in a few hours a couple years ago, once I read up on it and Craig Bruce released his excellent Swiftlib routines. It's taken me months of on and off reading to get my brain around PPP, and I still have quite a few questions and uncertainties. But it's quite cool that Errol Smith has it working now - I'm looking forward to trying it out once it's hooked up with a TCP/IP stack! -- Robin Harbron firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.psw.nu/ - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
