Compressed SLIP definition networking
(CSLIP) VanJacobsen TCP header compression
. A version of SLIP
. CSLIP has no effect on the data portion of the packet
and has nothing to do with compression by modem
. It does reduce the TCP
header from 40 bytes to 7 bytes, a noticeable difference when doing telnet
with lots of little packets. CSLIP has no effect on UDP, only TCP.
