NAME
       slattach - attach serial lines as network interfaces

SYOPNSIS
       slattach ttyname [ baudrate ]

DESCRIPTION
       Slattach  is  used  to assign a tty line to a network interface, and to define the network
       source and destination addresses. The ttyname parameter is a string of the form ``ttyXX'',
       or  ``/dev/ttyXX''.   The optional baudrate parameter is used to set the speed of the con-
       nection. If not specified, the default of 9600 is used.

       Only the super-user may attach a network interface.

       To detach the interface, use `ifconfig interface-name down' after killing off the slattach
       process.  interface-name is the name that is shown by netstat(1)

EXAMPLES
	       slattach ttyh8
	       slattach /dev/tty01 4800

DIAGNOSTICS
       Messages  indicating  the  specified  interface	does  not  exit, the requested address is
       unknown, the user is not privileged and tried to alter an interface's configuration.
