SLIP connection goes away

SLIP connection goes away

Post by Andrea Controz » Tue, 18 Jul 1995 04:00:00



I tried to connect 2 computers, let's call them A and B with a leased
cable and SLIP interface.
Both of them has simple UART16450 chips. On both of them I do the same
iniziatilization and
slattach -p slip -s 19200 /dev/cua1 & (cua0 on computer B)
ifconfig sl0 A pointopoint B up (B pointopoint A on computer B)
route add B (A on computer B)

Where A and B are 200.0.0.1 and 200.0.0.2, just a couple of test IP
addresses.

Now, all seems to work. I ping :all ok.
I telnet, all seems ok.
After a random amount of bytes, sl0 on A disappears, and the route to B
is deleted. The funny (ehm...) is that slattach does NOT die! It's still
alive but sl0 disappears (doing ifconfig, I see only lo active).
This happens ONLY on A.
If this helps, A is a 486dx2 with kernel 1.2.11, B is a laptop with kernel
1.1.59.
Who know's why this happens and how to solve the problem?

MANY thanks for the help, please mail me.
