To whom it may concern,

I tried to set up the slip connection between my FreeBSD 2.0 R system
and one of my school machines

I am using the kermit as a dial out tool for Sportster Modem which
is accessed by /dev/cua01. Following is my attempt for the slip
using kermit:

1) dial out to one of phone lines which are provided by the school.
2) enter username & passwd
3) type 'slip'
4) suspend the kermit session (by typing 'z')
5) as a root 'slattach -h -c -s 57600 /dev/cua01

After the slattach, I can ping any machine at my department. But if
I tried to 'telnet <hostname>', 'rlogin <hostname>', or 'ftp <hostname>',
then it says 'Connected to <hostname>', but does not give any login prompt..
For example,

         [/usr/users/uh] ftp grep
         Connected to

         [/usr/users/uh] telnet grep
         Connected to
         Escape character is '^]'.

, then the process hangs there!!! I have to kill that processes from 
  other window!!

I do not know what I did wrong. Following is my interface status:

   [/usr/users/uh] ifconfig sl0
   sl0: flags=9011<UP,POINTOPOINT,LINK0,MULTICAST> mtu 552
           inet --> netmask 0xffffff00 

After I ping some machines at my school, 

   [/usr/users/uh] netstat -r 
   Routing tables

   Destination      Gateway            Flags     Refs     Use  Interface
   default     UGS         0       38  sl0
   localhost        localhost          UH          1        0  lo0   UH          1       55  sl0 localhost          UGHS        8    14808  lo0

My '.kermrc' file looks like this:

   set modem sportster
   set line /dev/cua01
   set speed 57600
   set parity none
   set flow rts/cts
   set terminal bytesize 8
   set file type binary

If anybody had similar problem like me before, then I really appreciate
your e-mails.
