SLIP6 connects byt does nothihg
After some diddling, I'm trying SLIP in addition to PPP (hardware
flow control is killing me).
I seem to be successfully making a SLIP6 connection, but it doesn't
Given the troubles with my hardware flow control & PPP, I've tried
SLIP. I've installed sliplogin & slirp at both ends, and both
kernels have a module for slip with 6 bit.
The cnnection claims to start:
CONNECTED to 22.214.171.124 with address 126.96.36.199
>> mode SLIP6
Found protocol "SLIP6" returning 3
Got protonr = 3
Kernel IP routing table

eyry.econ.iasta * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 sl0
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default eyry.econ.iasta 0.0.0.0 UG 1 0 0 sl0
but I can't get any life from the connection:
hawkins:/home/hawk# ping 188.8.131.52
PING 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11): 56 data bytes
will sit forever without a response.
Am I missing something that's necessary to make the connection usable?
