A good start!

You provider is doing fine here, giving you the CSLIP service.

You did something wrong on your side of the phone line.

The information looks fine.

You need to configure the SLIP interface too.

I assume you haven't compiled away the SLIP support that's built in to all
distributions by default.
The single machine to ISP SLIP setup on Linux consists of several steps,
which can be integrated using the dip program. But first the single steps:
1. Dial up your ISP using any communication software, login. You should be
able to do things on your ISP's machine like read news, etc. (Check)
2. Fire up SLIP from your account on the ISP machine. (Check)
3. Configure your SLIP interface (i.e. the modem on your Linux machine,
sl0). In your case
ifconfig sl0 220.127.116.11 pointopoint 18.104.22.168
route add 22.214.171.124
route add default gw 126.96.36.199
At this point, you could do ping 188.8.131.52, etc. but still can't do ping
4. Set up resolv.conf to include:
Now you can use names instead of IPs in your ping.
You do 4 only once, and 1, 2, 3 everytime you connect. These 3 steps can be
accomplished by using the dip program:
% dip -t
DIP> port cua0
DIP> speed 300

OK, CSLIP is on! I'm 184.108.40.206, you are 220.127.116.11
DIP> get $remote 18.104.22.168
DIP> get $local 22.214.171.124
DIP> mode CSLIP
