    What does the RPC/SLIP - the app or the Kernel?

    If you have no flow control is it possible that someone is dropping a byte
    somewhere any recovering?

    If your device is set at the right speed (check with stty -a < /dev/ttyS??? )
    then what speed does :

    dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/ttyS??? bs=1 count=10000

    show, for my line set at 9k6 (on ttyS0) it's showing 1.0kB/s which
    seems about right.

    What's the serial card - is it an onboard card or a PCI plug in,
    I've seen problems on Linux a few times where the device driver
    has the speed of some plugin cards out by a factor of 8.
