OK, here is a brief summary of all the responses I got for getting SLIP on
Sparc under SunOS 4.1.
* slipware.tar.Z on neat.ai.toronto.edu contains slip-4.0 along with a few
utilities programs/daemons. It claims to be very reliable. If you want it
to run on SunOS 4.1, you must get the mclput patch from Sun, patch-id
100149-01. This patch basically fixes the ip_input & if_subr modules that
would cause kernel panics when certain sequence of ip packets cause the mbuf
chain to be corrupted.
* I've also been told that slip-4.1-beta.tar.Z on uunet.uu.net runs fine on
SunOS 4.1 even without the mclput patch. I haven't tried it yet however.
* There is a package on uunet.uunet, dialupip.tar.Z, that would do auto modem
config and dialout for SLIP. However, it was written on SunOS 3.5 and there
is no port as yet for SunOS 4.x
