Since I am finding that my dialup SLIP connection is somewhat
unreliable, and since I can't afford the costs of a 56K digital line
and the few thousand dollars' worth of equipment needed with it, I am
seriously considering installing a voice-grade analog leased line to
my Internet service provider with V.Fast modems on either end and
running SLIP or PPP.
I have been running dialup SLIP with Linux using DIP to make the
connection for about 8 months now, and it has been running well.
However it's not clear to me how (or even if) to configure DIP to work
on leased lines.
I'm sure I could figure it out sooner rather than later, _after_ I get
the line installed, but would rather have a real clear idea in my mind
how to go about this _before_ I spend the $800 to have the line put
in, and even before I spend the $500 for the modems.
I have checked the documentation I have, and have grepped on several
keywords on a few weeks of past c.o.l.h, but if this is an RTFM type
question, feel free to flame me ... but please also direct me to the
proper TFM to R.
Please respond either here in the newsgroup or to
Thanks in advance ...
