There is the `official' Interactive implementation, which should be out
with the next release of HB TCP/IP (I think). Ask your sales droid.

If you are really in a hurry, or want to look at some crufty code, I
can send you the SLIP package I wrote a couple of months ago. It never
got beyond beta-test (I had no real use for it -- I wrote it as an
excersise in STREAMS programming, before I wrote another driver for an
experimental network interface I'm using), but apparently people have
been using it successfully.
