Hi.

 Looking for Transys SLIP networking software, apparently this is free? I would like to use this over the serial port on VirtualBox to see if I can get networking up and running.

 Here is the article it is mentioned in
https://www.nextcomputers.org/NeXTfiles/Docs/FAQ/Misc/NeXT_as_a_home_machine.pdf

Thanks

I was a bit worried I would have to try to port source code over from one of the early versions of NetBSD. Will update thread later with a tutorial when I have it installed  :)

I will no longer be trying to  attempt to set up a virtual serial port on linux to connect to a serial port on Virtual Box 6.1.38 running OpenStep as guest as I now have networking up and running in VirtualBox 6.1.38 on Lubuntu 22 for both NeXTSTEP 3.3 (intel) and OpenStep 4.2 (intel).
