SLIP

SLIP stands for Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP). SLIP places data packets into data frames in preparation for transport across network hardware media. Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) is used for sending data across serial lines. SLIP provides no error correction, addressing, compression, or packet identification. There are no authentication or negotiation capabilities with SLIP. SLIP will only support transport of IP packets. RFC 1055 provides information about Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP).
