I need source to make a direct serial connection to another machine. I want to
pass snmp UDP packets across this serial wire and have them come out on the
other side just as if they had come across the network as a real UDP packets.

It looks like Steven's dialer code could provide the connect layer. I
downloaded the code, but can't get it to work under hpux because of
differences in how streams and low-level ioctl calls work.

As a test bed, I have a null-modem cable connected from RS-232 A port to B
port. Has someone got a setup that works? Any suggestions?

(hpux 715/80 10.01)

Why don't you use HP-UX's ppl for SLIP connections?

1. Slirp via a direct connect to an HP

Has anyone successfully used SLIrP on their HP 700 through a direct
connection on one of the serial ports???

 I am trying to do this, and I have managed to get it working to some
degree. I can connect to SLIrP and I can telnet to certain hosts. But I
cannot access any hosts when I try to connect using HTTP or NNTP. I keep
getting checksum errors.

Any thoughts??
