1) How do I get slip to run >38400 baud, I tried 57600 but
dip forces the speed to 38400 -- is that a Linux limitation?
2) after some slip usage ifconfig reports:
sl0 Link encap UNSPEC HWaddr
inet addr 18.104.22.168 P-t-P 22.214.171.124 Mask 255.255.0.0
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING MTU 296 Metric 1
RX packets 4235 errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 4061
TX packets 5994 errors 0 dropped 0 overruns 5691
Is it normal to have that many overruns? I am using a 16550A UART.
Running some sample ftp file transfers I get anywhere from
1.5 Kby/s (compressed files) up to 3.4 Kby/s (uncompressed text),
which seems to indicate the transfer speed isnt suffering. Still
the overruns reported is disturbing.
