       Dear Sunmanagers

Sorry for very delayed answer but I was out for quite a long time.
I've asked about SLIP monitoring software. I've received two answer
which I include below.

From: Pete Shipley <>

What slip package are you useing? the one I have has a command called
slstats(8) and slinfo(8). I can also use tcpdump to watch the packets
if need be.

I am runing cslip-2.7 from on SunOS 4.1.3u1

From: (Edward C. Zimmermann)

Use slstats (if using cslip) or better netramet.
