Description

SLIP routines enable IP communication over a serial line.

The Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) is a link layer protocol used to establish a direct connection between two nodes over serial ports or modems. Feature wise, it is superseded by PPP (more features, such as authentication and encryption). But many microcontroller applications still use SLIP instead due to its very small overhead.
