CONFIG_UML_NET_SLIP: SLIP transport

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_UML_NET_SLIP has multiple definitions:

SLIP transport found in arch/um/Kconfig.net

The configuration item CONFIG_UML_NET_SLIP:

Help text

The slip User-Mode Linux network transport allows a running UML to network with its host over a point-to-point link. Unlike Ethertap, which can carry any Ethernet frame (and hence even non-IP packets), the slip transport can only carry IP packets.

To use this, your host must support slip devices.

For more information, see http://user-mode-linux.sourceforge.net/old/networking.html. has examples of the UML command line to use to enable slip networking, and details of a few quirks with it.

The Ethertap Transport is preferred over slip because of its limitations. If you prefer slip, however, say Y here. Otherwise choose the Multicast transport (to network multiple UMLs on multiple hosts), Ethertap (to network with the host and the outside world), and/or the Daemon transport (to network multiple UMLs on a single host). You may choose more than one without conflict. If you don't need UML networking, say N.
