Sorry for the late summary because I was very busy lately. I have given up
using slip-41 and used cslip-2.6 instead. cslip works great and is very
easy to install.
However I think I may know what my problem is with slip-41. When I
type slipattach, I used /dev/ttya for the device and slipattach from
slip-41 did not complain at all. But when I do slattach from cslip
using /dev/ttya, it complains that /dev/ttya is busy. So I used cua0
instead of ttya and it works! This make me believe that had I used cua0
instead of ttya for slip-41, it might have worked.
