SCO SLIP uses the following configuration files indirectly:
This file is used for SLIP packet filter specifications and
is shared with PPP.
It is created when the SLIP STREAMS stack is installed,
unless PPP has already created it.
When created, it contains only comments; actual filter entries
must be added by manually editing this file.
This file and filter entries within it are required only if packet filtering
is needed for one or more SLIP links.
``PPP packet filtering''
manual page for more information on packet filtering
and the /etc/pppfilter file.
Any remote IP address to which a SLIP link will be
must be listed here with any host names by which a user may
specify the remote host.
If the Domain Name Service (DNS) is being used on the local host,
then hostname-to-IP address mapping is done by that system
instead of through this file.
These two files are UUCP systems files.
Dynamic outgoing SLIP links require entries in these
files for SLIP to be able to use UUCP facilities for
This dependency is described in
``Configuring UUCP for dynamic outgoing links''.
