Serial Line Internet Protocol
Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) is the protocol which TCP/IP uses when operating through a serial connection.
It is commonly used on dedicated serial links and dial-up connections that operate at speeds between 1200bps and 19.2Kbps or higher.
For example. to run the cu command on tty0 with a baud rate of 115200, use the following procedure:
- Ensure the hardware supports the baud rate.
- Edit /etc/uucp/Devices to include the following
Direct tty0 - 50 direct
- Enter the smit chtty fast path.
- Select tty0.
- Change the baud rate to 115200.
- Exit SMIT.
