CSLIP failing under LINUX 2.0.14 DIP 3.3.7o-uri

CSLIP failing under LINUX 2.0.14 DIP 3.3.7o-uri
Running Kermit or regular SLIP works just fine
syslog shows that when trying to run in CSLIP mode under DIP,
the ioctl to setup compression fails with

Sep  6 08:04:18 mist dip[519]: tty_notlocal: file0: /dev/ttyp1  flle4 /dev/cua1
Sep  6 08:04:18 mist dip[519]: SET_ENCAP(VJ_COMP=1): Invalid argument

the same ioctl in SLIP mode where 0 is passed, works, and the kernel
is configured with CSLIP enabled ...
it's not clear from drivers/net/slip.c even where the EINVAL is being
set ??

thanks for any hints

CSLIP failing under LINUX 2.0.14 DIP 3.3.7o-uri

Hmm, don't know, but if SLIP works and CSLIP doesn't,
isn't this an indication that your _server_ supports
SLIP but not CSLIP? Am I missing something?

[Also, I haven't tested DIP under kernels > 2.0.12.
I found that 2.0.14 sucks and decided to give it a
rest until they stop fooling around with rewriting
the stuff.]

1. DIP-3.3.7-uri (was Re: Bizzare DIP/CSLIP problem

Please try my modification to DIP-3.3.7.
It's in
        dip337-uri.tar.gz
in
        /pub/Linux/Incoming
on
        sunsite.unc.edu

I've fixed a few bugs, and added "netmask xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx"
and "default" commands (or fixed "default" - I don't remember).
The gist is - I'm able to run Compressed SLIP with 0.99.15a
kernel. There's an example of how to use those additional
commands in the sample... Oh, I've added "quit" command,
so if it quits in the middle of attempting to establish
the link - you still are able to use your serial port
without rebooting the whole box (:-).

Dip  handles  the  connections needed for dialup IP links,
like SLIP or PPP. It can handle both incoming and outgoing
connections,  using password security for incoming connec-
tions.  The outgoing connections use the system's  dial(3)
library if available.

This version of DIP handles only SLIP and Compressed SLIP.
