The main difference between the Serial Line Internet Protocol (SLIP) and Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP) is that Serial Line Internet Protocol is the Predecessor protocol of Point-to-Point Protocol. On the other hand, Point-to-Point Protocol is the Successor protocol of Serial Line Internet Protocol.
Let’s see that difference between SLIP and PPP:
|1.||SLIP stands for Serial Line Internet Protocol.||PPP stands for Point-to-Point Protocol.|
|2.||SLIP is a Predecessor protocol of PPP.||While It is a Successor protocol of SLIP.|
|3.||SLIP covers the internet protocol packet.||While it covers the datagram.|
|4.||SLIP does not provide authentication.||While PPP provides authentication.|
|5.||The derived Protocol from SLIP is Compressed SLIP.||While the derived protocol from PPP is PPP over Ethernet and PPP over ATM.|
|6.||SLIP is a static IP addressing assignment.||While it is a dynamic IP addressing assignment.|
|7.||In SLIP data is transferred in synchronous form.||While in this, data is transferred in both synchronous and asynchronous form.|
