I've setup a SLIP server on the IRIX6.2 box.
I decided to use a proxy-arp routing so I run on IRIX:
arp -s slip-client server-ethernet-address pub
and as login shell I run:
exec /usr/etc/slip -p cslip -i -m 255.255.255.0 -l slip-server -r slip-client
On Linux slip-client I run dip script like this:
get $local slip-client
get $remote slip-server
After login when I run on the Linux box:
I have to wait about 5 minutes to get the output
and one of the entries is:
default slip-server 0.0.0.0 UG ..
Why the netmask is set as 0.0.0.0 while I requested 255.255.255.0 ?
The connection works only for a local network of the slip-server. So I can
telnet to the slip-server and to a couple of other machines but not to the
If I run on the slip-server netstat -r I can see an entry like this:
slip-client slip-server UH ...
I tried on the slip-client:
route del default
route add default gw slip-server netmask 255.255.255.0
but then I could connect ONLY to the slip-server.
So, I have routing problem. Any suggestion what could possibly cause
it and how to tackle this problem?
