No, that's the usual Cornell modem pool and slip service, implemented with
Annex servers. I could have been dialed in with CUslip, but it actually
was HydePark MacSLIP.

Well, if you have an IP router implementation and so on to run on the Mac,
it could be *possible* but CUslip itself contains no such things. Probably
it was a form of exageration for me to have described it as acting as a
server-- better to have described it as acting as a "callee." You have to
manually configure IP addresses at both ends, for example.
