ARCHIVED: What is SLIP?
SLIP stands for Serial Line Internet Protocol. It runs the standard TCP and IP protocols over a serial link instead of over an Ethernet port. Essentially, SLIP uses a serial port as a slow network interface port.
UITS does not provide SLIP service due to an incompatibility with its dial-in servers. If you dial into an Indiana University modem pool, you should instead use PPP.
