My goal is to get a SLIP going into a shell account with TIA.
I've read through the NET-2-HOWTO, and the TIA FAQ, and have
(apparently) successfully run a dip script, which appears to work.
If I try ifconfig, I get something like:
sl0 Link encap AMPR AX.25 HWaddr
inet addr 192.0.2.1 P-t-P 22.214.171.124 Mask 255.255.255.0
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING MTU 1500 Metric 0
Rx packets 0 errors 0 dropped 0 overrun 0
Tx packets 0 errors 0 dropped 0 overrun 0
However, I've apparently installed or configured something incorrectly,
because I can't even ping myself.
If I try "ping localhost" or "ping 127.0.0.1" I get:
ping: unknown protocol icmp.
Or if I try "telnet localhost" or "telnet 127.0.0.1" I get:
telnet: tcp/telnet: unknown service.
Can someone shed some light on this, or suggest a diagnostic
to reveal what I'm missing?
