I was wondering if OVERRUN ERRORS are normal when using slip. I have a
14.4k modem with V.32 v.42 MNP etc etc. I seem to get quite a number of
them. To connect to my SLIP provider I use all the compression methods
as well as RTS/CTS Flow Control. I am also using a 16550 serial card
from BOCA. Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong direction. Someone
recommended I lower my MTU's but I have not tried that. Below is my
ifconfig with the errors displayed:
sl0 Link encap Serial Line IP
inet addr 22.214.171.124 P-t-P 126.96.36.199 Mask 255.255.255.0
UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING MTU 1500 Metric 1
RX packets 1233379 errors 1 dropped 0 overrun 709
TX packets 1513719 errors 0 dropped 1388 overrun 869
This is only in about 30 mins worth of SLIP use.
I've tried other modems with it and other serial ports as well as new
cables and still the same problem.
Thanks for any help
