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 and the Linux box  
Therefore from reading the docs I figured that I needed to call the 
following command in my rc.net:

slattach -l -r -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...
