     slattach — attach serial lines as network interfaces

     Slattach ttyname [baudrate]

     Slattach is used to assign a tty line to a network interface, and to
     define the network source and destination addresses.  The following oper‐
     ands are supported by slattach:

     ttyname	   Specifies the name of the tty device.  Ttyname should be a
		   string of the form ‘ttyXX’, or ‘/dev/ttyXX’.

     baudrate	   Specifies the speed of the connection. If not specified,
		   the default of 9600 is used.

     Only the super-user may attach a network interface.

     To detach the interface, use “ifconfig interface-name down” after killing
     off the slattach process.	Interface-name is the name that is shown by

	   slattach ttyh8
	   slattach /dev/tty01 4800

     Messages indicating the specified interface does not exit, the requested
     address is unknown, the user is not privileged and tried to alter an
     interface's configuration.

     netstat(1), netintro(4), ifconfig(8), rc(8)

     The slattach command appeared in 4.3BSD.
