HOWLS!!! Thank you for pulling this latest release of Slirp. The new maintainer for Slirp is Kelly "STrRedWolf" Price The homepage is now http://slirp.sourceforge.net Now, this is a new release with new numbering similar to the Linux kernel, so if you see a x.even.x release, it's a stable release, while x.odd.x is a developmental release. Do read the README.NEXT file located here fully. I(Kelly) am getting alot of bug reports that don't have alot of stuff to go on. Also contained in that file is info on the mailing list. Read it if you want to mess around with it, there's alot to do inside!!! One last thing. For the arbitrary tty, set the enviroment varible SLIRP_TTY to where you need to connect. I use SLIRP_TTY=/dev/pilot slirp for my Palm Pilot. --Kelly Update by Roger Plant You can now use something like "tty /dev/ttyS0" on the command line to set up an alternate tty. For use under CYGWIN You will need to supply a "dns YourDnsIP" option slirp will not find it's DNS's under windows. Alternatively you could possibly create and fill in a /etc/resolv.conf file (Not tested...) Modify the Makefile to have the -MS_DCC option enabled, It will allow a direct cable connect into Slirp, PPP mode only. (This option works on other platforms too, but is most likely to be useful for windows) Also if it compiles, but doesn't work, try backing off the optimizer. eg. -O1 instead of -O2, or even delete the option completely. This applies to all platforms. Thanks Arnold Shulz SECURITY SLIRP remains insecure. Most though not all of the buffer overflow issues indicated by Tim have been addressed. Slirp is a User program. Anyone using slirp via a PPP connection, has or can obtain the privileges that slirp is running at.
