I'm running a 28.8k slip link between my linux PC and a SUNworkstation network.
Both the linux slip server and my PC are using 16550 com ports. However,
whenever I check ifconfig or netstat I always got Tx/Rx Overrun and Dropped.
Then my question is what is the difference between overrun, dropped and error?
What are the factors could affect these in the slip link? Hw/Sw?
How these dropped/overrun affect the link at application level under certain
Thanks in advance for comments!
