SCO SLIP features
This release of SCO SLIP provides:
Support for up to 64 simultaneous SLIP
links if no PPP links are active.
For each active PPP link, remove
one from the maximum number of SLIP links that can be supported.
Support for SLIP communications initiated from the local host and
SLIP communications initiated from a remote host.
Use of serial lines dedicated to a single SLIP link,
or dynamic acquisition of serial lines using UUCP on an as-needed basis.
Dynamic addition and removal of SLIP links.
This makes it unnecessary to relink the kernel or to
stop and restart TCP/IP when adding or removing links.
Packet header compression.
SCO SLIP provides a mechanism for specifying what types
of IP packet (for example, those carrying FTP data versus
those carrying RIP data) will pass through a SLIP network
For more information, see
``SLIP packet filtering''.
