(X)Net slip link linux

Well here I have been working on it for a while. Because (new) Linux works with master /dev/pmtx and slave /dev/pts/? it is not always easy to find out which slave you will be assigned. Custom programs such as kissattach that give the slave with stdout. Now slattach does not suffer from it unfortunately. Oh well in Debian than.

I use the following program to create a master and slave.

I have added the code below. Because I would like the pts to be written down in a file.

As you can see above, the pts are displayed with printf and they are written in /tmp/slip. Well here I wanted to go. Now I can read the file. Here I use the following in my start script of (X) Net.

With the command “sed” the PTS is adjusted in AUTOBOOT.NET. Now I do not have to worry about what pts I get assigned.
