slattach - attach serial lines as network interfaces
slattach [-hm] [-s baudrate] ttyname
slattach is used to assign a tty line to a network interface, and will attach the named tty line to the first available slipdevice that is con- figured and up. The following operands are supported by slattach: -h Turn on RTS/CTS flow control. By default, no flow control is done. -m Maintain modem control signals after closing the line. Specifically, this disables HUPCL. -s baudrate Specifies the speed of the connection. If not specified, the default of 9600 is used. ttyname Specifies the name of the tty device. ttyname should be a string of the form "ttyXX", or "/dev/ttyXX". In addition, the following flags to ifconfig(8) control various proper- ties of the link: link0 Turn on Van Jacobsen header compression. -link0 Turn off header compression. link1 Don't pass through ICMP packets. -link1 Do pass through ICMP packets. link2 If a packet with a compressed header is received, automati- cally enable compression of outgoing packets. -link2 Don't auto-enable compression. Only the superuser may attach a network interface. To detach the interface, use "ifconfig interface-name down" after killing off the slattach process. interface-name is the name that is shown by netstat(1).
