Slirp is no longer supported by the author, but you can try to get it
going. I used it successfully when I only had a shell account. You
will have to compile your own copy unless it is already available
there. See the home site at:

For most people, the way to go is to use lynx from your unix shell
account. The only thing you lose is the ability to view graphics
immediately from a helper application on your pc. Your ISP probably
already has lynx installed. To see which version, type "lynx -version"
from your prompt. If it is an old version, perhaps you can get them
to update. If you have room on your account, you can compile your own
copy of lynx. With the help files, it takes between 2 and 3 Meg of
disk space, but you can use gzip on the help files and gzexe on the
binary to compress this if space is a problem.
