That's a pretty good idea.  For TELNET, 28.8 is plenty.  Did you tell your ISP
that you are going to be dialed in full time?  Most of those guys get ticked off
if you run a server program over a dialup line.

BTW, are you SLIPping into the ISP?  I could never get my modem to dial out when
I fooled with SLIP.
