Yes, there doesn't seem to be one, at least not for relatively recent Windows or MacOS X versions. And it's highly unlikely that someone will provide one - SLIP has been obsolete for years, replaced by the (largely MS-driven development of) PPP.

Hi,

I do not use Windows or MacOS X, does mean it is a non starter, as there seems to be only 2 operating systems... oh I forgot the the one I use; Linux.

I considered it obvious that Linux in fact does support SLIP (and has always done).
