NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       slhosts  - File containing information on how to configure
       SLIP links

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The slhosts file is the file that contains information for
       configuring  SLIP  links.   If the system is configured to
       answer calls, the following events occur: A getty  process
       prompts  for  a  login  name.  If the login name matches a
       SLIP user entry in the /etc/passwd file, the startslip  is
       run  as  the login shell.  The startslip program reads for
       the slhosts file for an entry matching the  current  login
       name.   If  a matching entry is found, the line is configured
 as a SLIP link, using the information in the entry.

       Each entry in the slhosts file has the following syntax:

       login_name    remote_slip_ip     local_slip_ip     netmask

       In this syntax: Specifies the login name of remote dial-up
       host.  It is used to match the entry in this file.  Specifies
 the SLIP host name or address of remote dial-up host.
       Specifies the SLIP host name or  address  of  local  host.
       Specifies the netmask to be used for the SLIP link.  Specifies
 a runtime option.  Specify debug for  logging  debug
       messages in the syslog daemon.log file.

       Comments  are  indicated  by the comment character (#) and
       continue to the end of the line.

       Note that the slhosts file is a Context-Dependent Symbolic
       Link  (CDSL) and must be maintained as such.  See the System
 Administration manual for more information.
