I've set up PLIP on my linux box and would like some way to
connect it to a laptop of mine NOT running Linux. What programs can
you suggest in order to do this?

Another random extraction from the mental bit stream of...
Byron A. Jeff - PhD student operating in parallel - And Using Linux!
i have a 2 machine n/w - comprising a linuix (2.0.35 kernel) i386 box
connected to a NT box via ethernet . I wish to add my FreeBSD notebook
(2.2.8 ) to this networkvia PLIP but have so far failed miserably -
and yes I probably don't know what I am doing :-)
I'm usng a 192.168.0.x network thus:
Linux and NT communicatre just fine.
I have compiled PLIP support as a module have loaded the plip modules
I set the plip interface on Linux :
ifconfig plip1 linix pointopoint freeBSD arp up
and on the freebsd I do:
ifconfig lp0 FreeBSD linux
I have a laplink parellel cable between linux and freebsd. And both
machines have appropriate entries in /etc/hosts.
I guess I need to add some sort of route - and did
route add 192.168.0.0 netmask 255.255.255.0
however netstat -r does show the plip interface with a route to it.
Actually something has jsut occurred to me ((right this moment) - I
have the same IP address for the linux ethernet and Plip port -
presumably this is not good. Ok i'm going to and try changing that.
Menawhile if anyone can offer any pointers I'd be grateful - i'll let
u know if it works after using different addresses for eth0 and plip1
on Linux. What sort of route format do I need to use?
