: I have been trying to use dip to connect to my school's network. Unfortunately,
: only dynamic SLIP addresses are used. Does anyone use dip with such a
: connection or know of any info. I can find in order to help me write a
: successful script. Thanks in advance for the help.

This is not too hard to do--just put a line in your dip script which
takes your IP address from the startup message your SLIP server should
give when you connect, like so:
get $local remote
This will read your local address from the text the remote computer just
sent (it automagically finds the IP address in the string).
There are some examples of this that should have come with dip. I forget
where they are located (/usr/doc?), but if you do a little snooping you
should be able to track them down (you could always try 'find / -name
sample.dip -print'). Good luck.
