null-modem SLIP between two linux boxes

null-modem SLIP between two linux boxes

G'day all,
  I don't have many hairs left at all.....for weeks I've been trying to
  SLIP or PLIP these two linux boxes together by null modem/parallel.

  The cables are fine, I have tested them both.

  Machine1 (luscious): localhost luscious sixty

Machine2 (sixty): localhost luscious sixty

        both machines have a /etc/networks file with: localnet

        on bootup, I run dip on machine2:
        get $local luscious
        get $remote sixty
        get $mtu 1500
        port cua0
        speed 19200
        mode SLIP

        the first thing I get is network unreachable

        the question is, how do you give yourself an IP address of something
        other than

        I can't ifconfig lo luscious because localhost is using that device.

        ANY hints at all, I really would like to get this going...



1. Linux/Win95 to Linux Box Via Null-Modem, then to Internet

Dear all who care:

I actually pulled it off. After about 2 months of research and various
failures, I finally did it. I have two computers, connected with a null
modem cable, and I've been able to connect both to the 'Net via
IP Masquerading. Just thought you should know. If you have any questions
on how to do something like this, let me know. I'll try to be as helpful
as i can. . . .

Just though You should know,
