       slattach  [-dehlLmnqv]  [-c command] [-p proto] [-s speed]


       Slattach is a tiny little program that can be used to  put
       a  normal  terminal  ("serial")  line  into one of several
       "network" modes, thus allowing you to use it for point-to-
       point links to other computers.


       [-c command]
              Execute  command when the line is hung up. This can
              be used to run scripts or re-establish  connections
              when a link goes down.

       [-d]   Enable  debugging  output.  Useful when determining
              why a given setup doesn't work.

       [-h]   Exit when the carrier is lost. This works  on  both
              /dev/tty  and /dev/cua devices by directly monitor­
              ing the carrier  status  every  15  seconds.   [-v]
              Enable verbose output.  Useful in shell scripts.

       [-q]   Operate in quiet mode - no messages at all.

       [-l]   Create  an  UUCP-style  lockfile  for the device in

       [-n]   Equivalent to the "mesg n" command.

       [-m]   Do not initialize the line into 8 bits raw mode.

       [-e]   Exit right after initializing  device,  instead  of
              waiting for the line to hangup.

       [-L]   Enable 3 wire operation. The terminal is moved into
              CLOCAL mode, carrier watching is disabled.

       [-p proto]
              Set a specific kind of protocol to use on the line.
              The default is set to cslip , i.e. compressed SLIP.
              Other possible values are slip (normal SLIP), adap­
              tive  (adaptive  CSLIP/SLIP),  ppp  (Point-to-Point
              Protocol) and kiss (a protocol used for communicat­
              ing  with  AX.25  packet  radio  terminal node con­
              trollers).  The special argument tty can be used to
              put  the  device back into normal serial operation.
              Using 'ppp' mode is  not  normally  useful  as  ppp
              requires an additional ppp daemon pppd to be active
              on the line. For kiss connections the axattach pro­
              gram should be used.


       axattach(8), dip(8) pppd(8), sliplogin(8).
