Yes, that seems right.

I don't recall linux having slattach, but a simple DIP script will work
port xxxxx # Where xxxxx is replaced with the name of the serial device.
speed 19200 # Obvious enough
get $local 18.104.22.168 # Set our IP address.
get $remote 22.214.171.124 # Set the other end.
default # Make the route the default-route
mode CSLIP # Fire up the interface.
# Script ends here.
That should create the necessary CSLIP interface at the linux end.

Aha! Look in /etc/ttytab
root can only log in from terminals which are marked as 'secure'.
BUG: If you are refused login as root, on a non-console tty, then all
further logins on that tty will be refused. No sure where the bug lies. I
think it's in telnetd. But it could be somewhere in mintos.
