Slip connection to Linux Box
I've been trying to set up a SLIP connection with someone in my house
who has a LINUX box, and I wondered if anyone could help me out.
I've got a 4MB STE setup with MiNT 1.12.5, MiNTnet 0.80 and quite a lot
of application software, grabbed from all over.
If I want to create a SLIP connection along a null modem cable to a
linux box, what steps do I need to take?
I've decided to call my machine 220.127.116.11 and the Linux box 18.104.22.168.
Therefore from reading the docs I figured that I needed to call the
following command in my rc.net:
slattach -l 22.214.171.124 -r 126.96.36.199 -s 19200 -p cslip -t /dev/ttya &
Am I right in thinking that if my friend with a Linux box runs a
corresponding slattach command at his end that the communication will be
set up? Or does one of the computers be set up as a server, and the
other a client.
If anyone has direct experience with the Linux slattach command I'd be
grateful, as it seems to have a different argument structure than the
MiNT one. For one thing it doesn't have either the -r or the -l option,
so we can't figure out how to tell it which address to use.....
While I'm here I'd also like to ask about another problem I have. I've
got inetd set up to call rlogind on an rlogin command and I also have the
telnet command set up, but when I try to login to myself by rlogin or
telnet I get a response similar to below:
root login refused on this terminal
I believe this happens on any terminal (including console) and with any
username. Does anyone know what could be wrong...
