I'm trying to setup a SLIP account for my school's server, I have everything working up to a point.  I can log onto the server, I can ping the server, I can telnet to the server, and I can ftp the sever, but I cannot ping, telnet, ftp any other site.  I'm using dip to logon and both sides are running CSLIP.  If anyone knows how I can fix this please help.

Thanks in advance

You have to set up a default route with the server you connect to as gateway. After the slip connection is up, do a

/sbin/route add default gw <your_slip_server>

Also, see "man route"... :-)
