I am new to both linux and networking, but I have read the NET-2
HOWTO, other howtos, and scanned through postings to this newsgroup but
still can't solve my problem
The problem is, when I type
#dip -t [or just dip]
I get the error message
unknown server error
My goal is to run slip from my home using a single modem and no network
cards or such.
1. Configured the kernel saying yes to all network options as in the
2. Ensured that the daemons syslogd, klogd, lpd, and etd are running
by looking at processes in top.
3. Made sure the rc.inet* files in /etc/rc.d look like NET2-HOWTO
4. Ensured that I have the dip program. Version 3.3.71.
Hardware and software specs:
Gateway Pentium 90 with telepath II 14.4. modem
slackware 2.2.0, linux 1.21, dip-3.3.71
By the way, I should probably mention that when I recompiled the kernel
(to include network configurations), at the beginning of the recompilation
there was an "unknown server error" also. Is this and my problem related?
What am I doing wrong/what else is needed?
