I received one reply, suggesting MorningStar PPP (which also does slip).
Since I really only needed slip, and didn't have extravagant requirements, I
ended up ftp'ing cslip 2.7 from The instructions for patching
the kernel and setting up the login environment were very clear and I had
the whole thing up and running in four hours, even though I am not really a
sys admin. One thing I didn't get to work was compressed slip from PC
(Trumpet WinSock tcp/ip) to SUN; there may be some protocol difference, or
some configuration switch I missed. The regular slip from PC to SUN worked
fine. Hats off to the implementors!
