CONFIG_SLIP_MODE_SLIP6: Six bit SLIP encapsulation

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_SLIP_MODE_SLIP6 has multiple definitions:

Six bit SLIP encapsulation found in arch/um/Kconfig_net

The configuration item CONFIG_SLIP_MODE_SLIP6:

Help text

(none)

Six bit SLIP encapsulation found in drivers/net/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_SLIP_MODE_SLIP6:

Help text

Just occasionally you may need to run IP over hostile serial networks that don't pass all control characters or are only seven bit. Saying Y here adds an extra mode you can use with SLIP: "slip6". In this mode, SLIP will only send normal ASCII symbols over the serial device. Naturally, this has to be supported at the other end of the link as well. It's good enough, for example, to run IP over the async ports of a Camtec JNT Pad. If unsure, say N.
