This document will describe how to get your Linux box to connect to a generic site via a SLIP/PPP emulator, such as SLiRP or TIA. I take no responsibility for your use of this information, but corrections are welcome.

I will not attempt to describe all that can be done over this connection once established, but I will refer you to other documents or sites that will contain the relevant information.

That done, let's do it!
