If your IP address is allocated dynamically by a service provider then you
need to change it in the hosts file (and in Trumpet if not automatically
read-in by
Trumpet) after connection to SLIP. You also need to
make sure that Trumpet knows the IP of the router/DNS server. Again, if you
are connecting via a service provider then it will be their router and not the
one on any LAN you are usually connected to. The trace option in Trumpet
can help in tracking down some problems.

good luck,
