irst you must configure you server as a gateway to bypass the data to
the SLIP connection (The IP-forwarding option in the kernel).
The second thing to do is configuering routing. If e.g. your server is
part of an ethernet network and you are dialing in, the default router
must contain an explicit routing through your server to the
SLIP-machine. If you use a static routing you have to add to all
machines a line like (Linux):
route add -host SLIP-IP gw server-IP
This should work.
