Compiling dip-3.3.7-uri

Compiling dip-3.3.7-uri

Post by Peter Krop » Tue, 15 Nov 1994 10:08:07

I'm trying to get DIP as a SLIP server working correctly on my system.
The problem I am running into is that DIP is not adding the route
for the machine that is connecting.  Also, when the connected machine
disconnects, an lost dip process is left running on the system.

I downloaded dip-3.3.7-uri from the net under the assumption that I
didn't have the latest version.  I had alot of trouble actually
finding the code, finally finding it at a site which I believe was
in Europe.  Does anyone know of a site in the US which has the latest
DIP code?

On trying to compile the code, there are several error messages which
appear indicating that the "struct serial_struct" is unknown and that
ASYNC_SPD_MASK, ASYNC_SPD_VHI and ASYNC_SPD_HI are unknown macros.

I'm running on Linux version 1.1.54.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this resolved?

1. diplogin -> dip-3.3.7-uri or dip-3.3.7i?

I am still trying to straighten out using Linux as
a SLIP server.  Should diplogin link to dip-3.3.7-uri
or should it point to dip-3.3.7i?  I want to use
diplogin in the passwd file as the "shell":

Slip::501:100:Slip user:/tmp:/sbin/diplogin

Right now I have:

lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root        10 Sep 26 12:11 dip -> dip-3.3.7i*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin      25604 Feb 12  1994 dip-3.3.7*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin      29700 Apr 15  1994 dip-3.3.7-uri*
-rwxr-xr-x   1 root     bin      33880 Sep 11 23:21 dip-3.3.7i*
lrwxrwxrwx   1 root     root        13 Jan 31 20:54 diplogin -> dip-3.3.7-uri*

When I try to dialin to the Linux machine with this configuration,
after the user name and password I get:

DIP: Dialup IP Protocol
Then the phone line hangs up.

Any ideas?
