I have two Linux boxes connected via PLIP and was wondering how to get
slirp working..  'Tis very unclear!  :-)

## iret:/etc/hosts       localhost  short  news  cet  iret  edp1

edp1 is the box I am trying to slirp into the PPP connection between
iret and cet.  iret and short are the same machine, PPP/UUCP.

The PLIP connection between iret and edp1 is established thusly:

## iret:
/sbin/ifconfig plip1 arp pointopoint up
/sbin/route add -net plip1
/sbin/route add default gw plip1

## edp1:
/sbin/ifconfig plip1 arp pointopoint up
/sbin/route add -net plip0
/sbin/route add default gw plip0

My question is:  What is a proper .slirprc to allow edp1 internet access?
edp1 is a small system mostly used for IRC but any clues at all would
help.  I'm running slirp on iret, both iret and edp1 are here at home.





Can you help me about PLIP?
I want to know all about PLIP: where can I find these informations on
the Net?
