YOu have not tried higher speeds :)  At some point you will find out that
anything over 480baud doesn't work because the com driver in GNU Mach sucks
big time.  We will have tor ectofy this in GNU Mach v2, but this can take a
while (end of this year).

This is not the right way.  You will have to dig out the message by Neal
where he explains how to set it up if you want to try it out (it involves
setting -i tun0 on /server/socket/2).
