Hello:

recently i bougth at serial cable, null modem, 9 pins, with the next
connections between pins:

2-3
3-2
4-(6+1)
5-5
(6+1)-4
7-8
8-7

I configure the serial port with this command line:

slattach /dev/cua0 # machine with slackware 3.3 -> MWS3.3
slattach -p cslip -s 19200 /dev/cua0 & # MWS3.5
ifconfig sl0 192.57.10.1 pointopoint 192.57.10.2 up # MWS3.3
ifconfig sl0 192.57.10.2 pointopoint 192.57.10.1 up # MSW3.5

I gave telnet in MWS3.3:

telnet 192.57.10.2
...
Network unreachable

Somebody can give me pointers that how can resolv this problem? Why i
can't to connect? What is the right cable configuration for null modem?

Thanks for your help.
