SLIP login

Does anyone have any idea how I would get a server to allow incoming SLIP connections? ie, I want to make it a personal ISP so I can get internet from anywhere.

Also, what does it take to allow my server to accept regular dial-in (not SLIP) connections?

The server has a courier v everything 56k modem which is usable for this purpose. It is running RedHat 7.1.

look at a ppp howto
running a dialup server needs pppd, and a getty program to answer the phone.

As far as SLIP goes I'm not sure what you mean.
I don't see what SLIP is going to do as far as connecting from anywhere.

If you are connecting your local LAN you should use Ethernet
